The United States has been the world’s largest recipient of foreign direct investment (FDI) since 2006. While the inflow of FDI slowed as a result of the Great Recession, it is again on the upswing, and there is tremendous potential to increase the flow into your community, bringing additional jobs and boosting the local economy.
The Pro Learning Lab’s first webinar of 2014 will focus on how your community can more effectively attract FDI. In this session, we will discuss FDI trends, and research tools and data that can help you build a framework for creating a local strategy to attract foreign direct investment.
About the Speaker: Amy Koscielak
To support AEP's FDI attraction strategy, Amy monitors trends and directs research to identify target source markets, industries and companies. She translates the research findings into marketing strategy, messages, and outreach tactics.
