Embassy Led Eight Companies to 2018 Investment Event Seeking Business Opportunities in United States.

 Press Release, WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND – Ambassador Scott Brown today announced he is recruiting companies to join the New Zealand business delegation 2019 SelectUSA Investment Summit, June 10-12, in Washington, D.C. The Investment Summit promotes the United States as the world’s premier investment destination and connects qualified foreign firms with U.S. economic development organizations to facilitate business investment and job creation.

“Throughout its existence, the SelectUSA Investment Summit has been the best place to make the connections necessary for business success here in the United States,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “Past Investment Summit participants have announced $98 billion in new investment projects which have been responsible for creating more than 150,000 American jobs.”

The United States is currently home to more foreign direct investment than any other country in the world, with a total stock of $4 trillion at the end of 2017. The previous five Summits alone attracted thousands of international investors and economic development representatives from across the United States.

“The United States is the obvious choice for any New Zealand company looking to grow globally,” said Ambassador Brown. “There is no more worthwhile event for global business leaders to find growth opportunities than SelectUSA.”
