FDI supports jobs

Foreign investment supports jobs, both in Europe and around the world. Almost eight million jobs in the EU are supported by foreign investment from outside the EU, while over three million American jobs are supported by EU investment.

Politicians in the EU, the US and elsewhere, must continue to make a strong case for openness to foreign investment — and fair and equal treatment of foreign investors — because it supports jobs, makes businesses more competitive and benefits consumers.
