Growing the Global Investment in American Jobs Caucus

Driving economic growth and job creation demands a broader perspective than focusing solely on domestic efforts. This is where the Congressional Global Investment In American Jobs Caucus steps in – a dynamic
bipartisan coalition of legislators joining forces to champion foreign investment and unlock new opportunities for American workers.

Launched in 2016, the Caucus focuses on the important role global investment plays in the U.S. economy, as well as policies that ensure the United States remains the most attractive location for international investment. By working across the aisle, the caucus aims to create a favorable environment for international businesses to invest in American communities, fostering economic growth and job creation.

The Caucus’s Crucial Mission

  2. Promoting Fair Competition: The caucus champions a level playing field for domestic and foreign companies, ensuring that all businesses can compete fairly and contribute to the U.S. economy.
  3. Strengthening Global Partnerships: In an increasingly interconnected world, the caucus works to foster stronger relationships with international trade partners, promoting collaboration and mutual growth.

Benefits for America
The bipartisan efforts of the Global Investment In American Jobs Caucus have far-reaching benefits for the United States:

  1. Job Creation: Foreign investment directly supports millions of high-quality jobs in the United States, providing new opportunities for American workers and boosting local economies.
  2. Innovation and Growth: International companies often bring cutting-edge technologies and expertise to the United States, fueling innovation and growth in various industries.
  3. Increased Tax Revenue: Foreign investment can lead to increased tax revenue, helping to fund essential public services and support government initiatives.

Championing a Brighter Future
The Global Investment In American Jobs Caucus is a shining example of how bipartisan collaboration can create real benefits for the United States. By working together to promote foreign investment, the caucus is fostering economic growth, innovation, and job creation across the nation.
