Event description

Description

In a climate of globalization and change business leaders are forced to re-examine their international trade and investment strategies. This seminar will discuss potential opportunities for companies in the Jersey to begin or expand business in the United States.

SelectUSA is the United States government program to promote and facilitate business investment in the U.S. The interactive discussion brings together an expert panel to discuss and share practical information for businesses that are interested in or are currently exporting to the U.S., and existing exporters interested in setting up a presence in the vast U.S. marketplace.



Discussion

  • How do current economic uncertainties impact the future U.S.-UK transatlantic relationship, and what does this mean for companies in the Jersey?
  • Why, when and how should companies consider moving from an export to an investment strategy?
  • How do businesses, associations, and government agencies engage with U.S. states, cities and regions to grow their U.S. network and presence?
