Mr. Ismail Ersahin, CEO & Executive Director at WAIPA, attended and participated at the #SelectUSA Investment Summit, the premier event for global business investment in the United States between May 1-4, 2023.

Mr. Ersahin was there to connect with fellow IPAs, investors, and industry leaders to exchange ideas and explore potential collaboration opportunities driving sustainable growth at the conference bringing together businesses, investors, and economic development organizations from across the world.

Ersahin meet with HE Marisa Lago, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, U.S. Department of Commerce at SelectUSA.

“HE Lago, a great policymaker and a role model to all of us, emphasised on the importance of empowering IPAs in every capacity as they play a very critical role to attract and also facilitate investments in today’s FDI ecosystem. I couldn’t be grateful enough to SelectUSA for setting an example for the entire community through this Investment Summit where not only EDOs (IPAs) participate to learn from global partners but also get a chance to meet with investors across US to initiate trade and investment deals.” – Ismail Ersahin, CEO & Executive Director at WAIPA
