The President’s Export Council will hold a public meeting Sept. 14 via live webcast to deliberate on recommendations related to promoting the expansion of U.S. exports. Priority topics will include the Trans-Pacific Partnership and board appointments for the Export-Import Bank of the United States. Additional topics may include the Obama administration’s trade agenda, infrastructure investment, workforce readiness, access to capital for microbusinesses and small and medium-sized enterprises, and export control reform. Written statements to the PEC may be submitted no later than Sept. 12.
The PEC Subcommittee on Export Administration will hold a partially closed meeting Sept. 15 in Washington, D.C. The PECSEA provides advice on matters pertinent to those portions of the Export Administration Act that deal with U.S. policies of encouraging trade with all countries with which it has diplomatic or trading relations and of controlling trade for national security and foreign policy reasons. Topics to be discussed during the open session of this meeting include export control reform, the single form, the Reexport Technical Advisory Committee, and topics for action by the next administration.
