As mentioned below, this coming year will be a very busy one for trade, with Congressional votes expected on issues like trade promotion authority (TPA)and continued US membership in the World Trade Organization (WTO).

You will almost always learn something new, like the fact that some 97% of all exporters are small and medium manufacturers, or that 80% of our trade deficit is with countries with which we have no trade agreement. We’ll be regularly posting more of these, and sending them to Capitol Hill as well.
