The most effective way to maximize EB-5 job creation is to make sure that your job creating entity/project is part of and under an approved regional center, which can count not only direct jobs, but indirect and induced jobs as well. Indirect jobs do not depend upon the use of U.S. based suppliers.
Beyond having construction last longer than a two-year period, what are the most effective methods for maximizing direct, indirect and induced job creation in an EB-5 project? Will indirect jobs also be increased by using U.S. based suppliers as opposed to international suppliers for an EB-5 project?
You need to discuss your case with an EB-5 economist. Using U.S. suppliers will likely help if you seek to show indirect or induced jobs. The other way is to increase expenditure, assuming you are using an expenditure model.
