Business Wire India Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA), which has maintained an India office since 2004 will be in the Northern Virginia Economic Development Alliance booth at the upcoming SelectUSA Investment Summit, June 7-11, 2021. The summit is an initiative of the US Department of Commerce to promote business investment from around the world into the United States. In its 8th edition this year, the summit will be held virtually for the first time, to connect U.S. economic development organizations and international firms looking to expand.
FCEDA is a founding member of the Northern Virginia Economic Development Alliance (NOVA EDA), which formed in 2018 when ten jurisdictions aligned to promote Northern Virginia as the best place to do business. This is the first time that FCEDA will exhibit at the summit under the NOVA EDA banner, with a virtual booth to engage and interact with delegates looking to align a strong expansion strategy.
“Here in Fairfax County and Northern Virginia, our motto is “Innovation Lives Here” and we are delighted to have the opportunity to highlight our innovation economy at SelectUSA for international companies looking for a U.S. location that offers the best combination of business assets, diversity and cosmopolitan quality of life, and the talent they need to succeed here,” said Victor Hoskins, president, and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority.
“Our goal is building relationships and identifying trade leads which contribute to business and investment opportunities in both countries. Recently, we have seen the importance of secure supply chains, and expanding your business in the U.S.A. can help you achieve that goal and get you closer to your customer,” said Harold Brayman, Foreign Commercial Officer at US Department of Commerce, India.
Juhi Naithani, Assistant Director, International Business Investment, FCEDA, who leads the authority’s India outreach said, “FCEDA India is committed to providing all the support local companies need to make a conscientious decision to expand to the United States for greatest success.”
