Fueling American Innovation

When an international company chooses to build operations in the United States, they bring with them a promise to reinvest their U.S. profits back into the American economy. Many of these companies reinvest their U.S. profits through research and development (R&D) activities that support high-paying jobs, spur the discovery of new products and processes, and contribute to U.S. economic growth.
