2 Executive Summary Foreign direct investment (FDI) is of vital importance to the US economy. The US remains the worlds largest receiver of FDI, but faces competition for investments with developed and developing nations. The governments of those nations are promoting investment in their countries, as state governments and the federal government are promoting investment in the USA. SelectUSA was established in 2011 as a government-wide initiative to encourage and facilitate business investment in the United States. In order to grow FDI, it is critical that the US regulations impacting FDI are aligned with the goals of initiatives such as SelectUSA. Regulations put in place with the best of intentions, to protect national security or generate tax revenue, can serve to prevent or discourage the investment the country is working so hard to promote. These regulations must be reviewed with consideration for their impact on market access. 2
