The Outlook for Foreign Investment in the US
We are pleased to announce that the The Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) Connecticut Chapter, run by Elizabeth Soley of Jacob Street Partners and hosted by KPMG, will be holding their next meeting on May 25th, 2011 starting at 5:30 PM.
Great Britain's commercial heritage is stamped on New England as clearly as the village and town names that bear witness to its historical presence. Its imprint remains visible and vibrant here in Connecticut, where its unmistakable business presence helps drive our economy.
This presentation will feature Nick McInnes

in New York
, and Laura Jaworski
with the Connecticut Office of Economic and Community Development
, as well as other industry leaders. We will cover the outlook for economic growth and foreign investment into the North East, and in particular what is being done to encourage success stories like Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS, and Diageo.
