Businesses that trade are more resilient.  Ninety-five percent of the world’s consumers and two-thirds of all purchasing power are located outside the United States. Nearly 98 percent of American exporters are small businesses accounting for a third of the United States’ $2.2 trillion in export value. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) helps small business owners and entrepreneurs participate in this $46 trillion global trade economy.
