Selling more of our goods and services around the world is a great way to create American jobs, help small businesses, and keep the United States ahead of its global competitors. 

The Chamber wants to negotiate trade and investment agreements that are fair, accountable, and create a level playing field; put American families and workers first; and benefit consumers and businesses, especially small businesses, which represent 97% of all U.S. exporters.
