World Trade Week Event: USTR Hosts Congressional Services Caucus Visit
As part of the schedule of activities for World Trade Week, USTR hosted a visit by staff of the Congressional Services Caucus on Friday, May 21, 2010.
The Congressional Services Caucus was formed in 2007 with the goals of maintaining the global leadership of U.S. services and promoting policies that will expand U.S. services exports. The co-chairs of the caucus are Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY), Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-CT), Rep. Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX), Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), Rep. David Reichert (R-WA) and Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL).
The purpose of the visit is to learn more about USTR’s efforts to open up foreign markets to U.S. service suppliers and create jobs through trade agreements and direct advocacy with foreign governments. For more information on the activities of USTR’s Office of Services and Investment, see our Services page.
