The BE-10 survey is one of many mandatory surveys to collect information on US investment abroad and foreign investment in the US. The BE-10, which has a series of component parts, is the BEA’s benchmark survey of US direct investment abroad and is used to produce statistics on changing trends in investment activities of US-owned businesses in other countries. The BE-10 survey is conducted every five years and this year’s survey covers fiscal years ending in 2019.
