Spurring U.S. Productivity, Generating American Prosperity
When international companies invest in the United States, they “import” industry know-how and best practices.
U.S. exports from U.S. subsidiaries of international companies have increased significantly since the recession-related low of $217 billion in 2009. In fact, goods shipped from the United States by international companies grew approximately 16 percent over the past five years. At $370 billion, international companies produced nearly a quarter of U.S. exports in 2016.
