The Strategic Partnership Program

The Strategic Partnership Program

Recognizing the importance of collaboration and partnership for international business success, the International Trade Administration (ITA) launched the Strategic Partnership Program. By working with trade associations, private corporations, chambers of commerce, government entities, and other organizations that share ITA’s goals and objectives, ITA is better able to achieve its mission of enhancing America’s global competitiveness. Through the partnerships, we are communicating with millions of U.S. businesses about global opportunities. Our partnerships enable us to broaden and deepen our outreach and also provide ITA with important feedback. Benefits include:

  • Growing the U.S. exporter base, thereby supporting U.S. jobs at wages 13 to 18 percent higher than non-exporting firms;
  • Helping ITA target its products and services to the needs of America’s businesses; and
  • Increasing awareness of the benefits of international trade and foreign direct investment to the U.S. economy.

A growing partnership: Michigan Aerospace Manufacturing Association (MAMA)

The aerospace industry has been a cornerstone of the U.S. economy for decades. In 2015, the U.S. aerospace industry contributed $144.1 billion in export sales to the U.S. economy. When companies up and down the aerospace supply chain are involved in exporting, it creates well-paying jobs all across the country. ITA recently entered the second consecutive year as a strategic partner with MAMA. As with any productive partnership, working closely with MAMA allows our organizations to accomplish our shared goals while focusing on each other’s core strengths.

Partnerships Come in All Shapes and Sizes

Led by our Strategic Partner American Express, the Grow Global series visited Baltimore, MD and Long Beach, CA in 2016. It brought together small and medium-sized businesses who were seeking to export or expand their export markets. American Express provided their organizational and programmatic support to the events. During the panels and presentations, ITA told the audience about the various U.S. government resources available to them, including our Top Markets reports. We brought our industry experts who could answer their sector-specific questions and helped guide them to the right market. Attendees had the opportunity to connect directly with free and low-cost trade resources that they may not have otherwise been aware of.
