USTR Launches APEC 2011 Page

APEC 2011 USA Logo

Excitement is building here in Big Sky, Montana in the runup to the 2011 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Trade Ministerial. More than 20 trade ministers from around the world are joining Ambassador Kirk to work on building a seamless regional economy in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Asia-Pacific region presents major opportunities for American businesses to grow more jobs here at home by building on our Asia-Pacific trade, and the Obama Administration is working to enhance those opportunities through APEC. The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market in the world for U.S. exports, and receives more than 60 percent of U.S. goods and agricultural exports.

Today, launched a dedicated APEC 2011 page - a one-stop shop for APEC 2011 updates. Throughout this week, will highlight top exporting states, spotlight small business exporters and their experiences in the Asia-Pacific region, and conducting on-the-ground video interviews with local business leaders. We’ll also provide real-time updates and news on the progress we make here in Montana.

So be sure to check our APEC 2011 page soon and often – it’s going to be an eventful week here in Big Sky.
