APEC economies invest in American communities. The White House, U.S. Department of Commerce, and U.S. Export-Import Bank hosted an event on “Investing in America” and SelectUSA at the APEC CEO Summit.

Emceed by Deputy Assistant to the President & Coordinator for the Indo-Pacific Kurt Campbell, the event featured Secretary of U.S. Department of Commerce Gina Raimondo, Director of the White House National Economic Council Lael Brainard, and Chair of Export-Import Bank of the United States Reta Jo Lewis in conversations with CEOs representing major Asia-Pacific companies discussing their recent investments and the overall investing landscape in the United States. 

The event highlighted the substantial impact of nearly $200 billion in private sector investments into the United States, from companies based in APEC economies, since the start of the Biden-Harris Administration. These investments have played a pivotal role in fostering the creation of tens of thousands of quality jobs for American workers, spanning diverse sectors such as clean energy, batteries, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, and more. In fact, U.S. exports to Asia-Pacific economies have increased 25 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels, helping U.S. businesses expand and hire more workers.
