The U.S. marketplace is the pinnacle of business growth and investment opportunity; competitive, fast moving, dynamic, yet the most accessible in the world. In many respects, the U.S. remains the most attractive and largest global investment destination far outstripping other nations in foreign direct investment dollars. Foreign investment in the U.S. provides access to the vast American marketplace, its deep talent pool, a stable and innovative business environment and intelligent and rich sources of investment finance and capital.
The U.S. offers a business ecosystem unmatched in the world comprised of world class universities, flexible labor markets and deep talented labor pools and a highly developed judicial system protective of foreign investment and intellectual property. Moreover, its financial markets and stock exchanges provide a vast array of sophisticated financial products and capital sources, with unlimited venture capital and private equity sources.
Moreover, many successful Italian businesses are firmly ensconced in the U.S. marketplace across all industries and throughout every state. Italian design, craftmanship and advanced manufacturing prowess is highly prized and sought after. Many states welcome Italian investment and offer various incentive programs featuring tax holidays, labor subsidies, real estate availability, with enhanced benefits for establishing manufacturing operations.
Certainly, large Italian multination enterprises continue to lead with respect to foreign direct investment into the U.S. as they possess the managerial and financial assets necessary to succeed in this market. However, we continue to witness small Italian multinationals, (commonly referred to as “Pocket MNE’s) contributing to Italian direct investment into the U.S. Pocket MNE’s often hold competitive advantages in high value-added market niches and are keen to carry-out mergers and acquisitions in the U.S. as a vehicle to strengthen their respective position within their global supply chain as well as to source pools of foreign talent.
And last but not least, it serves as an excellent gateway to expanding business in Canada, Mexico and Latin America.
