The focus of today’s meeting with the Indian delegates was to facilitate direct feedback and insights into potential bilateral trade, business, and investment opportunities following the summit.

Thanking the participants for attending the 2018 SelectUSA summit, Consul General Kagan said “SelectUSA makes it easier for investors to choose the United States to expand their businesses.  SelectUSA provides a one-stop shop for credible, timely information and connections to support companies of all sizes at each stage of the decision-making process.”

SelectUSA is a U.S. government-wide program led by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Its role is to facilitate business investment into the United States and raise awareness of the critical role that foreign direct investment (FDI) plays in the U.S. economy.
