From employment in U.S. subsidiaries of foreign businesses to jobs in U.S. companies exporting abroad, international trade brings many jobs to county economies. Counties play an essential role in creating a business-friendly environment for these activities. In this meeting, representatives from various federal agencies talk about tools that the federal government can offer to county officials to expand international trade and business in their county. The meeting is structured in 15-minute sessions to allow attendees to network directly with representatives, foster connections and learn how they can partner with the federal government to encourage economic growth through international investment and exports. This session is hosted by the International Economic Development Task Force and open to all conference attendees.
