How the US Benefits from Direct Foreign Investment
One of the most important aspects of the EB-5 visa program is that it brings direct foreign investment to the US. Foreign investment is a crucial part of our US economy, bringing valuable benefits to the country. Here are just a few of the important benefits direct foreign investment provides for the US.
Jobs. Job creation is a direct requirement of the EB-5 program, with each investor creating a minimum of ten new jobs to the US. With thousands of investors participating in the program, this brings tens of thousands of jobs to the US economy. Broadly speaking, there are over seven million US workers employed by foreign-owned firms in the country, with an average salary of over $80,000 annually.
Economy. When workers are employed, the economy is improved, and increased tax collections aren’t the only benefit. Workers spend money in their communities, benefitting local businesses and creating an economic lift for that community. The economy also gets a boost once these workers earn enough to afford to visit relatives in other states or take family vacations, which spreads that economic lift to other areas. It’s a chain reaction of economic improvement when more US workers get good jobs.
Human resource development. In addition to becoming employed, US workers in foreign investment firms gain opportunities for career growth and advancement. Workers learn new skills that broaden their future opportunities and creates a more knowledgeable workforce for the US.
Immigration. As foreign investors begin to reside in the US through programs like the EB-5 visa, it broadens the diversity of the country. The US is a country built by immigrants, who all contributed over the years to build a unique, richly diverse culture in the US. It’s through our diversity that we discover and share new, innovative ideas that benefit both the economy and the culture.
