Investing in America
In an uncertain global business environment facing persistent inflation, the looming threat of a possible recession, supply chain constraints, skilled labor shortages and increasing political polarization, foreign firms are rethinking where – and whether – to invest in the US. Despite these tensions, the United States is still the largest and most dynamic and innovative economy in the world, offering international investors unparalleled access to deep capital markets, the world’s most lucrative consumer market and vibrant cities to operate from. What’s the state of play? Is the US becoming a more or less attractive destination for international investment? What policies is the US taking – or should take – to keep its position as a leader in inbound foreign investment?
The second edition of the FT-Nikkei Investing in America summit will gather senior leaders from foreign multinational corporations and city, state and federal officials for a day of cutting-edge content to explore the economic outlook for the US, key investment opportunities and the role of international companies in making America more competitive, sustainable and resilient. The event is once again organized in conjunction with the FT-Nikkei Investing in America Rankings. Taking place in Miami, the 2022 winning city, this high-level event will provide a platform to feature the states and cities that are best positioned as destinations of choice and analyze FDI trends and the rankings’ evolution since their launch in 2022.
