U.S. Embassy Doha Recruiting Qatar-based Businesspeople for 2023 SelectUSA Investment Summit

Delegates Will Seek Business Opportunities in United States at May 2023 Summit Near U.S. Capital City


Doha, Qatar – United States Ambassador to Qatar Timmy T. Davis announced he is recruiting companies to join the Qatar business delegation to the 2023 SelectUSA Investment Summit, which will take place from May 1-4 in the Washington, D.C. area.


The SelectUSA Investment Summit promotes the United States as the world’s premier investment destination and connects qualified foreign firms with U.S. economic development organizations to facilitate business investment and job creation across over 50 U.S. states and territories.


“The United States is the largest consumer market in the world and the obvious choice for any Qatar-based company looking to grow globally,” said Ambassador Davis. “At the SelectUSA Investment Summit, Qatar-based companies and government officials can make connections and gather information needed to start the process of establishing and growing their businesses and investments in the United States.  I am proud to lead this delegation to signal a new level of the U.S.-Qatar business relationship, and to highlight the diversity of investment opportunities that exist across the entire United States.”


The delegation from Qatar is usually comprised of the local Qatar-based business community and officials from related Qatari government entities.  This year, the U.S. Embassy in Doha is seeking to enhance this program with Ambassador Davis’s leadership of an expanded delegation and participation from distinguished local business groups.


The SelectUSA Investment Summit has historically provided returns for Qatar-based business investors.  Past Investment Summit participants have included announcements for expansions of their current operations to new states, which creates more jobs and fosters larger investment opportunities.  The SelectUSA Investment Summit facilitates their investment journey by bringing together relevant officials, regulators, and economic development facilitators from every U.S. state.  The U.S. Embassy in Doha is strategically aligning future, two-way investment opportunities following the goals outlined in Qatar’s National Vision 2030.
