SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit

SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit. The SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit is scheduled for October 31st and November 1, 2013. This may be the biggest meeting ever to increase economic development in the United States (Who would have thought that the United States would have come to this since back in 1980, when it was an economic powerhouse?). Let us hope this summit is genuinely trying to increase the US economy and jobs and not a Trojan horse, where the real reason for the summit is multi-national corporations trying to continuing to outsource U.S. jobs or trying to pass the dreaded Trans-Pacific Partnership Pact. (See my link on the TPP and why it is bad for America.) Update: this Economic Summit has just sold out.

What is the SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit?

The SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit is a first-of-its-kind, national-level engagement intended to connect businesses and investors from around the world with U.S. economic development organizations at the state, regional, and local levels.
