    For more than 45 years, the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) supported the economic growth of Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) initially only through domestic operations. It was in 2003 that MBDA published its first export report titled Globalization and Minority-Owned Businesses in the United States: Assessment and Prospects.

    The report led to the creation of our Global Business Strategies, subsequent research on MBE exporters, and the 2012 release of an export fact sheet that took a closer look at the exceptional export capabilities of MBEs, which revealed that minority-owned firms are:

    With Valentine's Day a recent memory and the Groundhog predicting an early end to winter, the focus of the American public turns to consumer goods; items such as jewelry for your loved one, recreational vehicles, or sports gear for the summer.

    It's no surprise that the world enjoys many of these items that are made in the United States, leather goods, contact lenses, footwear, sporting equipment and musical instruments are sought after across the world. In 2014, more than 10 states saw consumer goods exports to Asian countries exceed $50 million. These states were spread across the country. Both coasts, as well as the heartland were represented across the Asia-Pacific.

    The following is a cross-post from Tradeology ITA's Blog, .

    A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of joining more than one hundred reporters at the Hannover Exhibition Center in Germany for the Press Preview for Hannover Messe 2016. Roughly 40 companies presented their latest products and innovations to representatives of media outlets from all over the world.  Journalists were not only eager to learn about new, cutting-edge technology, but also wanted to know what it means exactly for the United States to be the Partner Country for the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology.

    Select USA

    The United States is truly honored to be the Partner Country or, in German, Partnerland for the 2016 Hannover Messe, and I know that Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker and President Obama are excited to be coming to Germany in late April.  And the whole team from the U.S. diplomatic mission in Germany is fully engaged in making certain that our partnership is an unparalleled success.

    This year, the United States is the premier partner country for Hannover Messe 2016, the world's largest trade fair for industrial technology scheduled for April 25th – 29th in Hannover, Germany.  The U.S. Department of Commerce has the privilege of spearheading our Country’s participation on this global stage and we are very excited about the opportunity to promote one of this Nation’s greatest assets—minority business enterprises (MBEs). 

    The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), along with other federal agencies, state economic development organizations and universities, will join top business leaders from around the world for Hannover Messe, and we invite you to be a part of the MBDA delegation.  MBDA is assembling a group of minority business owners and stakeholders to demonstrate not only the value of MBE products and services, but also opportunities to advance transatlantic trade and access to U.S. markets through collaboration with minority businesses.

    During the past few years, U.S. producers of transportation related goods and equipment have experienced an increase in demand for their products at home and overseas.  Products such as U.S.-built commercial aircraft, aircraft engines, miscellaneous aircraft parts, and parts of railway rolling stock, have become critical components to other countries’ transportation infrastructure system.

    U.S. exporters of commercial aircraft and aircraft engines will now have new opportunities in the TPP region.

    Health Information Technology (Health IT) has the potential to be one of the world’s most transformative industries over the next few years. The use of electronic health records to comprehensively collect and organize patient information, remote monitoring and telemedicine services to treat patients, and the use of statistical and analytical tools to determine the best course of treatment for both individual patients and entire populations of citizens, represent a few examples of how Health IT can have a significant impact on the health care sector in the future.

    Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries face challenges similar to those in the United States regarding delivery of health care, such as adequately and efficiently addressing a patient’s health condition, while maximizing cost effectiveness. Given that many TPP countries have health care systems at a relatively early stage of development, U.S. exports of Health IT product and service solutions provide a tremendous opportunity for these countries to quickly deliver improved health care to their citizens. Provisions in the TPP regarding pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and medical supplies, in conjunction with increased deployment of Health IT, will lead to critical improvements in the health care sector among all TPP countries, saving thousands of lives daily.
