Roland talks with US Trade Representative, Ron Kirk about growing small businesses and getting Americans back to work through exports.
President Obama has set a goal to double US exports in a effort to help create 2 million jobs. According to Kirk, 97% of companies that export are small businesses. Funding is being substantially increased for the Small Business Administration to help small businesses.
If you have a product that can be exported and need capital, the Small Business Administration will help you finance your growth. Secondly the US Department of Commerce has established a Gold Key Program that will help you find customers outside of the United States to purchase your product.
