Companies Expanding Overseas Create U.S. Jobs, Study Says

U.S. companies operating internationally help spur economic growth that creates domestic jobs to meet demand in foreign markets, according to a study conducted for two business associations.

When companies trade or invest overseas, it fuels hiring and investment in the U.S., the Business Roundtable and the United States Council for International Business said in the study released today. The groups suggest that U.S. policies and trade agreements be flexible to accommodate opportunities for companies to generate business, products or customers abroad.
