|On Tuesday May 20th, during a White House Round table on Investing in America, President Barack Obama announced the next SelectUSA Investment Summit will be held March 23-24, 2015, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland near Washington, DC (sign up here to receive an email notification when registration is officially underway).
IIUSA served as the voice of the EB-5 Program at the 2013 SelectUSA Investment Summit, which included numerous high level speakers from the Obama Administration as well as corporate executives of leading companies in the United States and around the globe. The 2013 Summit sold out, with more than 1,300 participants, including a diverse mix of global investors, U.S. economic development organizations, government officials, U.S. companies, and business associations.
It is expected that the 2015 summit will be twice the size, with more than 2,500 people from around the world helping to bring more job-creating investments to the U.S and to share stories about what “Made in America” really means. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker notes, “The SelectUSA Summit is all about business. It’s all about connecting investors with communities. We want to open that first door to making an investment here in the United States. Clearly, our investment climate is strong. America is open for business.”
