ITA's Strategic Partners support our mission of strengthening the competitiveness of U.S. industry, promoting trade and investment, and ensuring fair trade through the rigorous enforcement of trade laws and agreements.  Partnership activities help to grow the U.S. exporter base, educate the public on the benefits of international trade, and increase awareness of government resources that help exporters and investors.  Together, we can improve the global business environment and help U.S. organizations compete at home and abroad.
