BCUBE participates at the Select USA 2015 Investment Summit
BCUBE was invited to Select USA investment Summit taking place in Washington DC (23-24 March). Seven US Cabinet Secretaries, 35 Us Ambassadors and 2500 people from 70 different foreign markets attend Select USA 2015.
Recognizing that the competitiveness and job-generating ability of a nation is determined by its desirability as a place for businesses to operate, Select USA was created at the US federal level to showcase the United States as the world’s premier business location and to provide easy access to federal-level programs and services related to business investment.
President Obama, speaking at Select USA, announced some new initiatives to make investing and expanding within the United States even easier. He announced that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will increase clarity around the adjudication of the L-1B non-immigrant visa that allows international companies to temporarily deploy workers with specialized knowledge to the United States when launching or conducting operations here. This long-anticipated policy guidance is of particular interest to global companies participating in today’s Select USA Investment Summit.
Commerce Secretary Pritzker opened the conference laying out all the reasons why the United States is the number one place to invest. She highlighted that companies choose to invest in US because of the rising job market; the strong rule of law and intellectual property protections; world-class universities and global leadership in R&D; stable financial markets and vibrant supply chains; and the abundant and affordable energy supply.
