2005 National Export Strategy

"There has never been a better time for U.S. companies to sell and invest abroad," says Secretary of Commerce Carlos M. Gutierrez in his introduction to the 2005 report of the federal government's Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC). Among the reasons for this favorable export climate noted in the report are:

• newly negotiated and implemented free trade agreements — such as those with Chile, Singapore, Australia, and Morocco — that open new markets to U.S. exporters;

• organizational reforms and partnering initiatives at key federal export-promotion agencies that enhance their ability to aid U.S. exporters, especially small and medium-sized businesses;

• country- and issue-specific initiatives, such as those to protect intellectual property rights of U.S. companies.

In its three chapters, the 2005 TPCC report focuses on each of these factors. It also identifies areas of future growth for U.S. exports, highlighting seven key geographic markets and identifying industry sectors within them that are likely to experience export growth over the coming years.

The TPCC is an interagency group chaired by the secretary of commerce. The Export Enhancement Act of 1992 established the TPCC to harmonize the export promotion and financing programs of the U.S. government, as well as to develop a comprehensive plan for implementing such programs.
