Washington DC Today, the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) joined with six other business associations to launch a new online information clearinghouse, Investment Policy Central, to highlight the importance of an open investment climate.

"The NFTC is pleased to be a part of this effort, which is aimed at raising awareness and understanding of the key role foreign investment plays in growing the U.S. economy and supporting American jobs," said NFTC President Bill Reinsch. "Open, rules-based global trade and investment not only benefit large U.S. companies and workers, but also the many small- and medium-sized U.S. businesses throughout the supply chain and the thousands of Americans they employ."

Investment Policy Central will be a center of excellence for the most accurate, up-to-date information on the benefits of an open international investment climate. It presents facts and figures on investment, highlights the benefits of global investment, debunks common investment myths, and provides links to a wide range of resources on investment policy.

Investment Policy Central will continually add timely, relevant content to the site from experts on investment policy and welcomes suggestions and input from companies, associations, organizations, think tanks, and academics and other individuals interested in promoting an open international investment climate.

"It is our hope that Investment Policy Central will serve as a valuable resource for policymakers and thought leaders interested in learning more about the many ways in which foreign investment contributes to the American economy," said Reinsch.
