International trade is key to driving America's economic growth

Millions of American jobs depend on America's ability to trade with other countries.

Half of all U.S. manufacturing jobs depend on exports, one in three acres on American farms is planted for international sales, and 49 out of every 50 U.S. companies that ship to other countries are small businesses.

But for too long, it has been hard to identify the everyday workers, farmers, and entrepreneurs whose livelihoods depend on trade - until now.
