2011 National Export Strategy report released

July 14, 2011 at 7:00 am

The White House, on behalf of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC), Tuesday released to Congress the 2011 National Export Strategy: Powering the National Export Initiative.

The report reinforces the importance of U.S. exports of goods and services, which in 2010 totaled $1.84 trillion, an increase of about 17 percent over 2009 levels, and supported more than 9 million U.S. jobs.

Starting with this report, the annual National Export Strategy will track and measure the federal government’s progress in implementing the president’s National Export Initiative (NEI).

President Obama announced the NEI in 2010 and set the goal of doubling U.S. exports by the end of 2014 to support millions of American jobs. This year’s National Export Strategy outlines progress made to date on the NEI and identifies the administration’s areas of focus for 2011.

The release of this year’s report marks the first time all 18 trade agencies have agreed-upon common metrics to measure export promotion.     Read more.
