Issue Position: Helping Small Business Discover New Customers - Exporting

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

The one thing businesses say they need during these tough times is: customers. The lack of consumer demand at home has taken its toll on our small businesses. We needed to do more to create an economy of the future where companies can create jobs by shipping American-made products overseas. Foreign markets can serve as an important tool to boost sales and offset lower demand at home. Unfortunately, businesses just cannot say "I want to export" today, and tomorrow have a new market at their fingertips. That is why I hosted an exporting workshop for local businesses to discover how they can tap into new markets. And that's why I am supporting funding for the National Export Initiative that's bringing these new markets closer to our small businesses. Soon these businesses will be exporting their way to recovery.
