About SelectUSA

U.S. Government Agency

SelectUSA is a U.S. government-wide program housed in the International Trade Administration at the United States Department of Commerce. Our mission is to facilitate job-creating business investment into the United States and raise awareness of the critical role that foreign direct investment (FDI) plays in the U.S. economy.

As global investment continues to evolve, SelectUSA showcases the advantages of the U.S. market to an increasingly diverse range of investors. Since its inception, SelectUSA has facilitated more than US $23 billion in investment, creating and/or retaining tens of thousands of U.S. jobs.
