WASHINGTON, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Yesterday, the United States Commerce Department announced the launch of NEI/NEXT, which will build on the success of the National Export Initiative (NEI) launched by President Obama in 2010. NEI/NEXT is a new customer service-driven strategy with improved information resources that will ensure American businesses are fully able to capitalize on opportunities to sell their goods and services abroad. 

Export-Import Bank of the United States

"Last year alone, the U.S. exported a record $2.3 trillion worth of goods and services," said Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. "During the same time period, Ex-Im Bank approved more than $27 billion in total authorizations to support an estimated $37.4 billion in U.S. export sales and approximately 205,000 American jobs. By helping more U.S. companies reach more overseas markets, Ex-Im Bank will play a critical role in supporting NEI/NEXT and its goal of growing the U.S. economy and U.S. jobs through exports."

NEI/NEXT will be implemented through the Export Promotion Cabinet and Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC), which consists of representatives from 20 federal departments and agencies with export-related programs. The Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker, chairs the TPCC.
