What’s New in National Export Initiative (NEI)

White House Releases Report to the President on the National Export Initiative

The White House released a report to the President on the National Export Initiative (NEI). The report outlines ways the U.S. government can expand efforts to help U.S. businesses win more foreign government contracts, find buyers worldwide, participate in more trade missions and trade shows, receive more export financing, and learn new ways to sell products and services overseas.  A central focus of the plan is providing additional assistance to small and medium-sized businesses, which are major drivers of new job creation.

National Export Initiative Webinar

August 16th, 2010 – Francisco Sánchez, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, encouraged the 50 state and five territorial governors to invest in creating and/or intensifying their efforts on exports during the first-ever National Export Initiative (NEI) webinar.  Courtney Gregoire, NEI Director for the International Trade Administration (ITA); and Taline Sanassarian from the Small Business Administration (SBA) provided an overview of the NEI, its goals, and the steps ITA and SBA are taking to implement the initiative. They also discussed federal and state coordination in support of the NEI, and highlighted state-based export initiatives as models for other states to consider.  The webinar concluded by discussing innovative efforts that are underway in Arkansas, Florida, and Washington, which support the NEI.

Export.gov and the NEI

Export.gov is your gateway to the trade promotion and export finance programs of the Federal Government. At Export.gov we have a lot for everybody.

The NEI is a multi-year effort to increase U.S. jobs by increasing the number of companies exporting and expanding the number of markets current U.S. companies sell to. The federal government’s trade promotion and export finance agencies are ready to help U.S. businesses large and small meet this challenge.

Over the months and years ahead, the NEI will:

  • Work with our Strategic Partners to help companies shipping to only one market expand their sales to new markets.
  • Expand the availability of credit for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s).
  • Improve online tools to make information easier to find and faster to use.
  • Work to reduce trade barriers that are in your way to increasing your exports.
