FRIDAY: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Host the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness for a Listening and Action Session on Increasing Inbound Direct Investment in the United States to Help Create Jobs and Grow the Economy

Secretary Clinton, Acting Secretary Blank to join Jobs Council Members, business leaders to discuss critical importance of US open investment policy and ways to increase inbound direct investment in the United States

WASHINGTON, DC – On Friday, October 7th, the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness will hold a Listening and Action Session with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank, GE Chairman Jeff Immelt, CEO of Kodak Antonio Perez, UBS Investment Bank President Robert Wolf as well as business leaders and stakeholders to discuss the critical importance of further strengthening inbound foreign direct investment in the United States. Investments by foreign-based companies as well as increasing domestic investment create well-paid jobs, contribute to economic growth, boost productivity, and support American communities. In June, President Obama signed an executive order creating SelectUSA – the first-ever government-wide initiative to attract and retain U.S. business investment.

The President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, as part of a series of recommendations to the President to promote private sector job creation, has recommended a heightened focus on continuing to grow foreign direct investment and increase domestic investment as a way to support job creation and encourage economic growth. On Friday, senior Administration officials and Members of the Jobs Council will hear firsthand from business leaders and discuss critical steps we can take to increase investment in the United States.
