Governor Eric J. Holcomb is participating in the 2022 SelectUSA Investment Summit in National Harbor, Maryland, from June 26-28. Led by the U.S. Department of Commerce, SelectUSA is the premier event connecting global companies with economic development organizations on significant foreign direct investment (FDI) opportunities. The Investment Summit will convene global executives and business leaders to discuss opportunities in innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as key topics including research and development, startups, global market dynamics, supply chain, infrastructure, and renewable energy.
While there, the Governor will participate in meetings with business executives and government leaders. On Tuesday, he will participate in a panel highlighting Indiana’s investments in infrastructure, energy ecosystem, and strength in public-private partnerships. Indiana Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers will also attend SelectUSA.
