Direct Line program - teleconference with U.S. Ambassadors overseas

The Direct Line program provides a unique opportunity for American businesses, particularly small- and medium-sized enterprises, to engage directly via teleconference with U.S. Ambassadors overseas. The program is open to American companies, which are already in the country where the Ambassador serves or which are interested in expanding their businesses into those countries. There is a calendar of calls at http://www.state.gov/e/eb/directline/ and businesses are encouraged to sign up for alerts. Over 500 participants have joined calls to date across 18 different markets including China, Indonesia, and Turkey.
