The Select USA Investment Summit is an event that has taken place yearly since 2013 in Washington, D.C. that showcases various economic development entities, both nationally and internationally. During a two day conference, over 70 economic development groups showcase their areas’ attributes and skills, adjacent to panel sessions that discuss various topics ranging from global growth, to tax policy, to intellectual property rights. Panel speakers include well known names like President Barack Obama, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffet, BMW North America President & CEO, Ludwig Willisch, and Pete Selleck, Chairman and President of Michelin North America.
This year, Lexington County’s Economic Development Director—Chuck Whipple—attended the convention along with members of Central SC Alliance--David King, Vice President of Marketing & Global Business Development, Mike Briggs, President & CEO, and Melissa Mimms, Director of Investor and Public Relations. Central SC Alliance, in conjunction with AmCham Italy, hosted 35 member companies from Italy to a tour of the US Capitol by US Congressman Joe Wilson (pictured above), and a seated dinner in the Capitol Visitors Center.
