The primary responsibility of the Advocacy Center is to promote U.S. exports and help create and retain U.S. jobs by coordinating strong U.S. government support to large, medium-sized, and small companies competing for international opportunities. The government group oversees resources from 19 U.S. government agencies in the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee to ensure that sales of U.S. goods and services have the best possible prospects overseas. The site provides news articles on the Advocacy Center and its program. Registration is optional; however, registering on the Export.gov community is used to contact members regarding specific trade opportunities, trade events, or export-related information of special interest.
