Investing in the United States

The United States of America is the world’s major economic power and remains the premier location for Foreign Direct Investment. After a few years marked by a cross-industry slowdown due to the effects of the economic crisis, key indicators suggest an ongoing recovery. The U.S. will continue to be an essential business location for international companies.

Advantages of Doing Business in the U.S.

The U.S. offers significant opportunities for investors:

  1. Access to a pool of 317 million potential customers with a per capita GDP of about $53,000 Source: Global Edge
  2. New entrants are often granted tax credits and incentives at the federal, state and local levels
  3. Multifaceted economy and fierce competition in the market fosters innovation, branding enhancement and new product development in every industry
  4. Local U.S. success can be turned into global reach 

To help potential entrants to the U.S. market, we have created a primer on the U.S. business environment. The entire Investing in the U.S. brochure can be read and downloaded here!

 

Case Study – Investing in the United States

Challenge

Our client sought to expand their operations in the United States in order to become a national retailer. Boston, in particular had been targeted as part of this North American expansion. The client was working towards opening four branches in the region and were in the process of getting approvals from the city administration. However, after a change of city personnel following a local election, the new administration wanted to restart the approvals process from the beginning.
Solution

We contacted our connection within the U.S. trade office, which led to the U.S. federal administration ensuring that the Boston city administration would grant authorization for the opening of our client’s stores. A few days later, our client was informed that everything would go smoothly and that he would promptly receive authorization to open his stores. Our connections with the right persons were key to a successful resolution of the situation.
Impact

A delay to open branches in the region would have put the whole expansion plan in jeopardy. Because of our efforts, our client was able to stay on target with planning, budget, timing and project expansion constraints and to avoid significant and unexpected costs related to a delay.
