5 Reasons You Should get Involved in the U.S. Chamber's International Affairs Division

  1. 1. REASON 1 | Trade Brings Opportunity
  2. 2. REASON 2 | Trade is Vital to Small Business
  3. 3. REASON 3 | Trade Agreements Can Level the Playing Field TARIFFS Many countries slap tariffs on U.S. exports that are ten or twenty times as high as our own, and a web of non-tariff and regulatory barriers overseas often shut out U.S. goods and services. The expansion in trade spurred by U.S. FTAs sustains more than 5 million American jobs. Trade agreements can tear down those barriers. That’s why America’s 20 FTA partners buy nearly half of U.S. exports even though they represent just 10% of global GDP. The U.S. has a trade surplus with its 20 FTA partners—in manufactures, services, and agricultural products. If you’re worried about the trade deficit, FTAs are the solution—not the problem.
  4. 4. REASON 4 | We Can Do More to Seize the Benefits of Trade The U.S. has embarked on a bold new trade agenda that includes: • The Trans-Pacific Partnership, with 11 other Asia-Pacific nations; • The Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, with the European Union; and • The Trade in Services Agreement, with more than 50 other countries.
  5. 5. REASON 5 | The U.S. Chamber Can Help! The Chamber has over 70 international policy experts on staff, speaking more than 20 languages. It is home to 25 country-specific business councils and initiatives focusing on key markets such as Brazil, India, and Korea. Our network also includes 116 American Chambers of Commerce in 103 foreign countries. The Chamber has hosted more than 250 heads of state and government over the past 20 years, including 14 in 2013, and annually receives more than 75 minister-rank officials from abroad.
