    Foreign Investment Generates Prosperity

    Foreign direct investment (FDI) includes significant investments by foreign companies, such as construction of production facilities or ownership stakes taken in Texan companies. FDI not only creates new jobs, it can also lead to an infusion of innovative technologies, management strategies, and workforce practices. More than 460,000 Texans worked for foreign companies in 2011, and their employment spread across the economy, providing the livelihood for a substantial number of Texans in the private sector workforce.
