The highest priority of the Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) is protecting the safety and well-being of ITA’s clients, partners, and staff. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to postpone the SelectUSA Investment Summit to June 2021.

We recognize that this schedule change may affect your near-term business plans, and we hope that making this adjustment now will afford you the opportunity to make other plans. My colleagues at SelectUSA will follow up to provide more information about the Investment Summit and other ways we can support you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

The United States remains the best place in the world to invest and we believe that the SelectUSA Investment Summit serves as the premier forum for international businesses to explore new investment opportunities. We are committed to bilateral trade and investment between the United States and the rest of the world and we look forward to our ongoing work with so many of you.
