Congratulations on the Greater Irvine Chamber's 3rd Annual World Trade Week Breakfast and Forum. The growth of this event reflects the importance of international trade to Orange County's business community. I commend the Chamber on expanding export opportunities for American companies and creating jobs for American workers. Free and fair trade is a top priority for this Administration.
The Department of Commerce looks forward to providing its resources and expertise, through the International Trade Administration's offices in Irvine and in more than 75 countries, to help U.S. exporters compete - and succeed - in global markets. I am confident that my team in Orange County will continue working closely with the Chamber and other local trade organizations to support and expand U.S. exports. Best wishes for a successful program.
