October 28, 2013 ─ On Oct. 31, 2013, investors from around the world and senior White House and Administration officials will join together to discuss the current state of cross-border trade and how to encourage foreign investment into the US at the US Department of Commerce’s SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit. O’Melveny & Myers LLP’s partner Steve Olson, the Executive Director of SelectUSA during President Obama’s first term through March 2103, is available to discuss:

a) ways to attract business investment in the US to promote job creation, economic growth, and competitiveness;

b) legal, regulatory, and procedural hurdles international investors may face in the US; and

c) the main agenda of the investment conference.

“We are at a critical moment here in our country’s history as the best global investment option for many businesses,” Olson said. “But it is incumbent upon us to actively attract more foreign investment into the US. Our nation is founded on innovation and we, as a nation, could be doing more to foster that.”

Olson is a partner in O’Melveny’s Los Angeles office. Previously, he was senior adviser to former US Commerce Secretary John Bryson and Executive Director of SelectUSA, an interagency initiative housed at the Commerce Department and created by President Obama’s executive order in 2011.
