Increase your visibility with investors from Europe
The Transatlantic Business and Investment Council (TBIC) provides an effective platform for local and regional economic development organizations (EDOs) to market themselves to potential investors from Europe, by means of a widely distributed membership and conferences designed to connect EDOs to potential investors and multipliers.
European Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has become one of the most important sources of manufacturing job growth in the U.S. It is still challenging for most EDOs to attract these investments to their communities.
FDI Trip Austria & Bavaria
The first FDI Trip of 2019 lead a delegation of our members from Vienna Austria, to Munich and Nuremberg, Germany. In the industrial heartland of Europe, the group met with key multipliers, including the Austrian Economic Chambers and SelectUSA, and met with company representatives from the automotive, aviation, machinery and many other sectors.

TBIC FDI Trip Switzerland & Italy

The trip started in Zurich, with a meeting with a promising advanced manfuacturing company looking to establish its first U.S. production facility. Afterwards, the delegation headed to Northern Italy for additional company meetings and a conference on U.S. market entry jointly organized with our Alliance Partner AICE Unione.

The Promise of FDIForeign Direct Investment (FDI) has become one of the major sources of manufacturing jobs in the US. As American manufacturers have moved manufacturing jobs to China and Mexico, European manufactures have stepped into the void and created millions of well-paying jobs in local communities all over the United States.
The TBIC bridges the gap between Economic Development Organizations and European investors searching for a perfect location in the US.
For a single Community it is hard to be heard in Europe and to actively promote its sites and European FDI readiness. Therefore the TBIC offers multiple opportunities to its Member Communities, to benefit from its market intelligence, its European business network and its experience in arranging delegation trips, meetings and events.Read more
