International companies grow America’s economy and make it more resilient through activities such as supporting local supply chains and small businesses, fueling American innovation, developing workforce training programs, exporting American-made goods and committing to charitable and sustainable developments. These investments also mean the international company’s home country has a stake in America’s success, which supports our economy and furthers U.S. foreign policy interests. Nationally, 7.8 million U.S. workers are employed by international companies.
