Strategic Partnership Program

Strategic Partnership Program

The International Trade Administration (ITA) recognizes the importance of collaboration and partnership for international business success. That’s why we created the Strategic Partnership Program. We can better achieve our mission when we work with organizations that share ITA’s goals and objectives. Through Partnerships, with organizations such as trade associations, private corporations, chambers of commerce, educational institutions, and government entities, we communicate with millions of U.S. businesses about exporting. Partnerships help us to: 

  • Grow the U.S. exporter base;
  • Support U.S. jobs at wages 13 to 18% higher than non-exporting firms;
  • Target our products and services to the needs of American businesses; and
  • Increase awareness of the benefits of international trade and foreign direct investment to the U.S. economy.

Our Partnerships help broaden and deepen our outreach, and better prepare U.S. exporters for international success.
