World Trade Month

World Trade Month

May is recognized as World Trade Month and gives us opportunity to acknowledge the importance of trade and investment as a driver of prosperity for our workers, businesses, and economy. That importance is reflected in the 11.5 million American jobs today which are supported by our exports.  The core of our export strength is largely small and-medium sized enterprises. They not only make up the majority of our exporters, but they are also responsible for two-thirds of all new net jobs since 1970.  Watch for unique events in your community designed to help bolster trade.
