The TPCC Wants to Hear from You
What do you think the government should do to boost exports?
As part the National Export Initiative (NEI), the interagency Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC) invites exporters and business people, as well as members of trade associations, labor organizations, NGOs, and academia, to share their ideas on what the government can do to make it easier for companies, especially small companies, to export.
The TPCC is chaired by the Secretary of Commerce and represents 20 federal agencies with a role in developing trade promotion policies and programs. The committee is looking for information on:
- which federal programs or regulations impede exports;
- which federal programs are most, or least, effective based on the personal experiences of the commentators;
- general changes in approach as well as specific steps the government could take to better help businesses export;
- foreign trade promotion programs that might be copied by the U.S.
Comments may be mailed: Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee, U.S. Department of Commerce, Room C102, 1401 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20230 Attn.: NEI Comments
Comments may also be submitted electronically here. The deadline for comments is July 23.
