The International Trade Administration is seeking nominations for members of its Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee no later than Sept. 2.
CINTAC provides advice on the development and administration of programs to expand U.S. exports of civil nuclear goods and services. This includes (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 foreign government policies and practices on the export of U.S. civil nuclear goods and services; (3) the competitiveness of U.S. industry and its ability to compete for opportunities in international markets; (4) the identification of priority markets with the potential for high immediate returns for U.S. exports as well as emerging markets with a longer-term potential for U.S. exports; (5) strategies to increase private sector awareness and effective use of U.S. government export promotion programs; (6) the development of complementary industry and trade association export promotion programs; and (7) the development of U.S. government programs to encourage producers to enter new foreign markets.
CINTAC members represent U.S. entities involved in the export of civil nuclear products and services and are required to reflect the diversity of this sector, including in terms of their size and geographic location. At least one individual representing each of the following will be appointed: civil nuclear manufacturing and services companies, small businesses, utilities, trade associations in the civil nuclear sector, research institutions and universities, and private sector organizations involved in strengthening the export competitiveness of U.S. civil nuclear products and services. Each member must be a U.S. citizen and must not be registered as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. In addition, no member may represent a U.S. entity that is majority owned or controlled by a foreign government entity (or entities).
