More than 95% of consumers live outside the United States. Selling more U.S.-made goods and services around the world is crucial to American jobs and will help businesses small and large grow. Expanding trade also enhances the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers while boosting the buying power of American families.
At the Summit of the Americas, Our Region Must Get Down to Business
Leaders from the public and private sectors across the Western hemisphere must find consensus on our shared challenges and opportunities at the Summit of the Americas.
Watch it again
See government officials and business leaders—including those representing small and medium-sized enterprises—from the U.S. and across the hemisphere meet to drive innovative, practical solutions for a brighter future across the Americas. This is the official private sector forum of the IX Summit of the Americas, in partnership with the U.S. Department of State.
Around the globe, the U.S. Chamber advocates for free enterprise, competitive markets, and rules-based trade and investment as the path to economic opportunity and prosperity for all. We work every day to break down barriers to trade and investment, open new markets for American exports and investments, and make sure there's a level playing field for U.S. companies.
Global economic challenges like COVID-19 vaccines, international tax, and climate change will require countries and the private sector to work together to find multilateral solutions.
