Its primary function is to advise the President on export trade matters. The PEC advocates export expansion and explores options for the improvement of trade relationships with the global trading partners of the United States. 575bcdf4-f33b-4786-baac-aecdf261eb6e The President's Export Council met with President Obama on September 16, 2010. The President spoke about the National Export Initiative (NEI) and the Administration's goal of doubling exports in five years. The Council deliberated and approved four letters of recommendation to the President regarding: export control; free trade agreements (FTAs); travel and tourism; and veterans retraining. 4025332d-defc-4efa-b1a1-b27ea774e3e7 Recommandations The President's Export Council is the only national advisory committee on export expansion and the only one that encourages export expansion in the private sector. The Council also makes recommendations on broad, national policies and programs affecting trade. Other trade-related committees exist with a narrower focus on trade negotiations, and most offer advice only on specific industry or sectoral matters. The Council is the only advisory committee on trade whose membership includes all the major actors in the trade field: representatives from the Administration, the Congress, industry, agriculture, and labor. Therefore, it is the only forum that allows for discussion and debate among these various factions prior to providing advice to the President. Because of the Council's unique membership, high-visibility, and access to policymakers, it can be a more credible and effective advocacy group than other advisory groups. The companies represented also have considerable resources to do research and other work gratis. Hiring consultants to do this same work would cost the Government considerably more. 11c22669-07c2-45e6-9ee9-e6bdb8cfac6d Make, Accept, Implement b570bcf3-10c9-4343-b080-49f2aa6d3d69 7899f278-0686-4739-b15d-c4c095a5d730 Recommendations Made Number President's Export Council Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The Council makes an average of 3-4 recommendations per meeting and an average of 2-3 meetings per year. 4 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 6aae4c09-4759-473a-94e0-cda2c7b73fe1 Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage President's Export Council Department of Commerce For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The Council submits letter of recommendation to the President regarding specific issues.
