International Trade and Investment

Selling more of our goods and services around the world is crucial to creating American jobs, helping small businesses, and keeping the United States ahead of its global competitors.

The Chamber wants to negotiate trade and investment agreements that are fair and accountable, that create a level playing field, and that put American families and workers first.

Trade policy can and must benefit all consumers and businesses, including small businesses, which represent 98% of all U.S. exporters.
