Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)

Tags

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is investments made by foreign companies or individuals in the United States. According to United Nations’ statistics on FDI, the United States was the world’s largest recipient of foreign investment from 1985–2016. However, the U.S. share of global FDI declined from nearly 40 percent in 1999 to 24 percent in 2016.

Working with economic development organizations across the country, we advocate for the United States as the world’s premier investment destination. The International Trade Administration’s SelectUSA program is the only federal program dedicated to facilitating high-impact business investment into the United States.

SelectUSA helps companies of all sizes find the information they need to make decisions, connect to the right people at the local level and navigate the federal regulatory system. SelectUSA also assists U.S. economic development organizations to compete globally for investment by providing information, a platform for international marketing, and high-level advocacy.
