The next entry in SelectUSA’s USG (U.S. Government) Webinar series (which focuses on specific member agencies and programs in the Interagency Investment Working Group, or “IIWG”) is set for December 13, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. GMT. The free webinar will highlight the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) and provide information on how it works with eligible applicants to support locally driven economic development strategies designed to attract foreign direct investment (FDI).

Topics will include:

  • How EDA’s grant making supports the conditions needed to foster strong regional economic ecosystems that are attractive to foreign investors
  • How EDA collaborates at the federal level to support local efforts that can result in major FDI investments and job opportunities for American workers
