"Ninety-five percent of the world's consumers and eighty percent of the world's purchasing power are outside our borders. That's why USTR is seizing on every opportunity to increase our exports, grow our economy, and support job creation aimed at strengthening the American middle class. We're selling more Made in America products to the rest of the world than ever before. But, there is still more we can do to help support the additional job creation our economy needs by harnessing the power of exports."- Ambassador Froman
