February 3, 2023

The Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala is recruiting companies of all sizes to join the Guatemalan business delegation that will participate in the 2023 SelectUSA Investment Summit with the goal of establishing or expanding their operations in the United States. The Summit will take place in-person from May 1-4, 2023 in the Washington, D.C. area.

The Investment Summit promotes the United States as the world’s premier investment destination and connects qualified foreign companies with U.S. economic development organizations to facilitate business investment and job creation.

“The SelectUSA Investment Summit is the top event in the United States for foreign direct investment promotion. The summit brings investors, companies, economic development organizations, and industry experts together to set the stage for investment deals. Hear from the top levels of Government about investment priorities and opportunities, tour the exhibition hall, meet with every U.S. state and territory, learn from industry experts, and participate in SelectUSA Tech programming and join me and SelectUSA next May to see for yourself why the United States has been ranked the number one destination for foreign direct investment for 10 straight years.” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo.
