COMMERCE UNVEILS NEW INTERACTIVE TRADE DATA WEBSITE
New TradeStats Express Includes Custom-Tailored Maps and Graphics of U.S. Trade Statistics

Linda Conlin, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Trade Development, today announced that the latest annual U.S. trade statistics can be found on a new, interactive and user-friendly Department of Commerce website.

"This new state-of-the-art website allows businesses to easily obtain national and state-level trade statistics custom-tailored to their needs," Conlin said. "It will be especially useful for U.S. businesses that need quick access to U.S. trade figures in order to identify the most promising export prospects for their products."

TradeStats Express enables visitors to easily retrieve, visualize, analyze, print and download U.S. trade data including exports, imports and trade balances for the years 1989-2002. Users can specify exactly what they want by employing intuitive, interactive menus. When requests are submitted, results are displayed in detailed maps, graphs and tables.

TradeStats Express was developed by MapInfo Corporation, the leading provider of location-intelligence solutions for businesses. A growing number of federal, state and local government agencies and other public sector organizations have embraced MapInfo's location technology for the development and deployment of e-government initiatives, resulting in streamlined communications and improved services with citizens and businesses.

Questions about the technology can be directed to Angela Girard at (508) 285-6000 or angela_girard@mapinfo.com

The new TradeStats express website can be found at http://tse.export.gov/.
