BusinessUSA is the US Federal Government's 'one-stop shop' for businesses, including potential foreign investors, while SelectUSA more specifically promotes the US as an investment destination. The US Commercial Service, through the BuyUSA program, will also help international companies identify US-based suppliers and business partners.

"Doing Business in the USA" Roundtables

AmCham Belgium launched a "Doing Business in the USA" series of roundtables in early 2014. This new program is especially designed for CEOs of large Belgian member companies who are active in the US or have significant US investment plans.  The aim is to get 15 to 20 leaders around the table on a quarterly basis to exchange ideas, contacts and best practices pertaining to their activities in the US.
