IIUSA’s most recent edition of the Regional Center Business Journal (“the RCBJ”) is now available on IIUSA.org and headed to the mailboxes of members, strategic partners as well as to Congressional offices and federal, state and local government stakeholders.

The 2015 Q4  issue of the RCBJ (review digital version here) takes a look back at the busy year that was for all stakeholders involved in putting Foreign Direct Investment to work creating American jobs through the EB-5 Regional Center Program. In 2015, the EB-5 Regional Center industry matured into a source of more than $1 billion in foreign direct investment (FDI) per quarter for the U.S. economy. And, since 2008, the Program has delivered over $13 billion in FDI to the U.S. economy with over $9 billion awaiting federal government approval today. The Program has finally come of age, becoming a potent economic development tool for diverse communities and industries across the country.
