Discussion: What can SelectUSA Summit Offer to Czech Investors

U.S. Embassy Prague Commercial Section in cooperation with the Central Bohemia Region, organized a coffee with Czech companies that participated in 2019 SelectUSA Summit in Washington as well as those considering participation in 2020.

“As you all well know, the U.S. GDP is approaching 21 trillion dollars, and averaging a steady 2-3% growth per year.  We have the largest market in the world by far.  With 330 million people, we also boast a significant, reliable customer base.  If you are looking to grow your business, you can’t afford NOT to be in the United States,” said Ambassador Stephen B. King.

Governor Jaroslava Pokorna Jermanova shared her experience with leading two delegations to SelectUSA Summit in 2018 and 2019. Czech companies participating the Summit highlighted the opportunity to meet with state economic development organizations (EDOs) and chambers that among other activities also helped to facilitate contacts with local business leaders in their area.

The Investment Summit is an annual event held to showcase the United States as the world’s premier investment destination.  Investors have a chance to connect with U.S. economic development organizations, federal government officials, and service providers who are all on hand to facilitate business investment and job creation.

Next year’s SelectUSA Summit will take place from June 1 – 3, 2020 in Washington, D.C.  For more information please contact the U.S. Commercial Service Prague at Office.Prague@trade.gov.
