New Market Exporter Initiative Launched Today by U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Postal Service

The U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) today announced the launch of the New Market Exporter Initiative (NMEI), an initiative intended to help boost U.S. exports.  The NMEI is intended to identify current USPS customers who are exporting their goods in an effort to help them expand their reach to additional international markets. 

The Commerce Department entered into a similar partnership with UPS earlier this year.

Under the partnership agreement signed today Postmaster General John Potter and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, the two organizations will work to provide foreign market expertise to small and medium-sized enterprises interested in expanding into new markets, providing simplified access to the free resources and tools available through the U.S. Commercial Service.

According to a joint press release, in the first phase of the partnership efforts will focus on those businesses currently shipping to one foreign market through the USPS. In subsequent phases, they efforts will focus on small and medium-sized enterprises to identify key markets, build market entry strategies and provide the guidance needed to take products and services from the U.S. to additional markets.
