SelectUSA 2017 Reaffirm Italy’s Strong Commitment To FDI In The US

The United States welcomes investors of all sizes, including established multinationals, small or medium-sized enterprises, and high-growth start-ups. The SelectUSA Investment Summit brings the diversity of the United States together under one roof – enabling any business to find the people, the resources, and the market it needs to be successful. Participants at the first three Investment Summits have announced more than $20.6 billion in Greenfield FDI into the United States since 2013. Data from FDI Markets show that these participants are responsible for more than 12 percent of all announced Greenfield FDI projects in the United States from fiscal year 2013-2016.
The Italian Trade Agency via its MOU with the US Department of Commerce, was present assisting the Italian delegation of companies - who over the past two years - including this year, has represented the largest EU delegation at the Summit. And this year, Italy had the 8th largest overall delegation present.
Total stock of FDI from Italy in the United States in 2015 (by UBO), registered over $47 billion with the primary sectors of Italy's FDI from those of Industrial Machinery, Auto Components, Metals, Consumer Products, Software & IT Services, and Alternative Energy.
As at previous editions, the Italian Trade Agency, together with the Italian Embassy in Washington and SelectUSA, hosted a network briefing event during the Summit for the Italian delegation on the second day of the Summit (June 19th, 2017).
The following day (June 20th), the Italian delegation attended a private meeting with the US Government’s Under Secretary for International Trade, Israel Hernandez, who welcomed the delegates to the Summit and engaged in dialogue on trade issues of interest by the delegates.
