The United States is the largest international destination for foreign direct investment and offers a vast domestic market, a transparent legal system, and the most innovative companies in the world. The Department of Commerce’s SelectUSA program provides easy access to federal and state-level programs, incentives, and services related to business investment, complementing the activities of our states—the primary drivers of economic development in the United States. Ghanaian investment to the United States is growing – including recent investments in the food production and personal care sectors.
The annual SelectUSA Investment Summit is the premier event dedicated to promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States and will be held on June 26-29, 2022, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
The Summit offers attendees an unprecedented opportunity to learn how to grow their businesses and/or invest in the United States — and to make the right connections, learn about locations, and discover relevant resources to move their investments forward. The SelectUSA Investment Summit is for investors of all sizes – including established multinationals, SMEs, and high-growth start-ups.
In addition to fantastic networking opportunities, this year’s Summit will feature special initiatives such as: SelectUSA Tech which offers opportunities for Ghanaian start-ups; special panels on Addressing Climate Change; and Select Global Women in Tech (SGWIT). SGWIT is a platform designed to support mentorship and learning. Mentees will be matched with mentors based on their goals, respective industries, and expertise. Mentors will be selected from across the U.S. startup ecosystem based on their interest in supporting female-run businesses.
