SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Contents I. Background II. Establishment of Working Group III. Member and Meeting Information IV. Request for Nominations I. Background The TPCC is an interagency group mandated by Congress (15 U.S.C. 4727) and chaired by the Secretary of Commerce. It was established to provide a unifying framework to coordinate the export promotion and financing activities of the U.S. Government, as well as to develop a government wide strategic plan for carrying out Federal export promotion and export financing programs. The United States does not have a single agency or government department responsible for creating a unified approach to governing export promotion; instead, 20 different departments and agencies approach exports with differing mandates. The TPCC serves as the coordinating body designed to ensure that these agencies and departments act together and work to implement the Administration’s export promotion agenda, through periodic principals meetings and more frequent working group meetings on a variety of subjects. The TPCC statutory mandate includes: (1) Coordinate the development of the trade promotion policies and programs of the United States Government; (2) provide a central source of information for the business community on Federal export promotion and export financing programs; (3) coordinate official trade promotion efforts to ensure better delivery of services to United States businesses, including: (a) Information and counseling on United States export promotion and export financing programs and opportunities in foreign markets; (b) representation of United States business interests abroad; and (c) assistance with foreign business contacts and projects; (4) prevent unnecessary duplication in Federal export promotion and export financing activities; and (5) assess the appropriate levels and allocation of resources among agencies PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in support of export promotion and export financing and provide recommendations to the President based on its assessment. In carrying out that mandate, the TPCC develops and implements an annual government wide strategic plan for Federal trade promotion efforts. The annual strategic plan establishes a set of priorities for Federal activities in support of U.S. exports; explains the rationale for the priorities; reviews current Federal programs designed to promote U.S. exports in light of those priorities; identifies areas of overlap and duplication and proposes means of eliminating them; proposes an annual unified Federal trade promotion budget to the President; reviews efforts by the States to promote exports and proposes means of developing cooperation between State and Federal efforts; and reflects certain recommendations regarding the promotion of travel and tourism exports as appropriate. For additional information, including the list of TPCC member departments and agencies, please see https://www. export.gov/article?id=What-is-the-TPCC. II. Establishment of Working Group Section 504(a) of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 (‘‘Act’’), amended the Export Enhancement Act of 1988 to add a new section 2313A. Section 2313A notes that U.S. policy is to promote exports as an opportunity for small businesses, and in exercising their powers and functions to advance that policy, all Federal agencies shall work constructively with State and local agencies engaged in export promotion and export financing activities. Section 2313A directs the President to establish the State and Federal Export Promotion Coordination Working Group (‘‘Working Group’’) under the TPCC with the purposes to: (1) Identify issues related to the coordination of Federal resources relating to export promotion and export financing with such resources provided by State and local governments; (2) identify ways to improve coordination with respect to export promotion and export financing activities through the TPCC annual strategic plan; (3) develop a strategy for improving coordination of Federal and State resources relating to export promotion and export financing, including methods to eliminate duplication of effort and overlapping functions; and (4) develop a strategic plan for considering and implementing the suggestions of the Working Group as part of the TPCC annual strategic plan.
