The United States has welcomed foreign investors throughout its history. In fact, the US investment treaty with the United Kingdom dates to 1815. The US now has investment treaties with more than 75 countries, allowing for special visas, tax treatment, repatriation of profits and freedom to invest virtually anywhere in the US and in nearly any industry.
The US remains one of the most attractive destinations for investment. Called the last bastion of free enterprise, the US has no history of expropriation of foreign investments. Every person in the US is protected by the US Constitution and has equal access to the US justice system, regardless of immigration status. Restrictions on foreign ownership of land, companies, and natural resources are prohibited, except in cases involving national security. While Americans may complain about too much government regulation, foreign investors are often surprised by how easily business can be run in the US compared with other countries.
