    In connection with that function, the committee provides advice on: 
(1) Matters concerning trade policy development and negotiations 
relating to U.S. civil nuclear exports; (2) the effect of U.S. 
Government policies, regulations, and programs, and the policies and

goods and services; (3) the competitiveness of U.S. industry and its 
ability to compete for civil nuclear products and services 
opportunities in international markets, including specific problems in 
exporting, and U.S. Government and public/private actions to assist 
civil nuclear companies in expanding their exports; (4) the 
identification of priority civil nuclear markets with the potential for 
high immediate returns for U.S. exports, as well as emerging markets

increase private sector awareness and effective use of U.S. Government 
export promotion programs, and how U.S. Government programs may be more 
efficiently designed and coordinated; (6) the development of 
complementary industry and trade association export promotion programs, 
including ways for greater and more effective coordination of U.S.

programs to encourage producers of civil nuclear products and services 
to enter new foreign markets, in connection with which the committee 
may advise on how to gather, disseminate, and promote awareness of 
information on civil nuclear exports and related trade issues.
