The UK delegation was led by representatives from the US Embassy in London and was comprised of 25 businesses with significant interest in US opportunities who had been invited to attend.

Commenting on the Summit, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Gina Raimondo, said:

“This year’s record-setting SelectUSA Investment Summit has shown why the United States has remained the top destination for global investment for over a decade.

Incredible investments that are being made under President Biden's leadership, including through the CHIPS Act, Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will help keep us at the top for the next decade and beyond.”

“Thanks to these investments and the work of the SelectUSA team, we are building on the $248 billion in investments by foreign-owned companies since the start of the Biden-Harris Administration to create good jobs for American workers and tremendous growth opportunities for our country and foreign businesses.”
