Did you know that the U.S. maintains free trade agreements with 17 countries, which account for 40% of U.S. exports and 31% of U.S. imports? In the Americas, the U.S. has identified two priority markets for export expansion based on future economic growth: first, Brazil which is one of the “Key Emerging Markets,” and second, Colombia, one of the “Next Tier Markets.”

In 2008, 58% of all U.S. exporters exported to only one market. Recognizing the continued importance of exports to the U.S. economy, the government launched the National Export Initiative (NEI) in early 2010, a program designed to help the U.S. double exports from $1.57 trillion in 2010 to $3.14 trillion by the year 2015.
