Foreign Direct Investment

Your Southern California Destination!

SCVEDC Radius Map 2014According to World Trade Center Los Angeles (WTCLA), over half of foreign-owned companies in Southern California are located in Los Angeles County. The Santa Clarita Valley is an ideal location for foreign direct investment because it provides easy access to the expanding United States market.

Santa Clarita is Los Angeles County's third largest city and is situated just 30 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. It is close to two international airports - Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. 

We recently published a soft-landing toolkit to help foreign firms establish a U.S. location in the Santa Clarita Valley. Our business services team is ready to assist your expansion efforts into the U.S. market.
