South Carolina
South Carolina brief
The State of South Carolina has a prominent place in the global marketplace for many reasons, but two factors are perhaps at the top of the list: the state’s advantageous location in the fast-growing Southeastern U.S. and an interconnected transportation system, at the center of which is the Port of Charleston – the most productive port in North America. Because of these factors, South Carolina has led the nation in recruiting foreign direct investment on a per capita basis, and today is home to more than 1,200 locations of foreign companies operating within our borders. Since January of 2011, South Carolina has recruited over $16.6 billion in capital investment from foreign companies, and nearly one-third of all jobs announced in the past four years have been a result of foreign direct investment. We have received almost $1.1 billion from China, and together these projects have created over 3,497 local jobs in South Carolina. 

The South Carolina Department of Commerce’s international strategy has focused on recruiting global business for several decades, and world-class brands like Haier, Michelin, BMW, Keer and Wellman Plastics Recycling are finding success in the state. Offices in Europe and Asia help companies establish, relocate and expand business operations in the U.S. and North American markets. In South Carolina, a robust logistics infrastructure, skilled workforce, access to growing markets and a business-friendly environment are all key assets that will continue to make our state particularly attractive for foreign investment.
