GPEDC Attends SelectUSA Summit

GPEDC Attends SelectUSA Summit

Kim Uhlig, our Director of Business Attraction, returned to the SelectUSA Summit in Washington, DC this June. Over 1200 international attendees from 66 foreign markets attended. This was our fourth year attending and we were part of the Intersect Illinois booth. Kim met with 12 companies one-on-one. Three were food processing companies, 9 were for manufacturing. A company from Kuwait has been introduced to USDA Lab to further determine resources for a new product. Two other companies are interested in a visit this fall.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit is designed to promote foreign direct investment in the United States.
