Government Partners With eBay to Promote International Trade
The Commerce Secretary of the United States met with eBay executives and merchants and announced a partnership between the government and the e-commerce company. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker said the partnership would promote U.S. trade and investment expansion. The partnership advances the Obama Administration's National Export Initiative, an ambitious plan to sell more American goods and services into foreign markets. eBay said the joint effort would focus on increasing awareness of the economic benefits of trade, specifically the important role that small and midsized enterprises (SMEs) can play in growing America's export economy.
