Commerce Secretary Gary Locke today announced the appointment of members to the President’s Export Council Subcommittee on Export Administration (PECSEA), which will advise the Commerce Department on the administration’s export control reform initiative.
“The PECSEA will provide invaluable advice as we continue to enhance our national security through the President’s reform efforts,” Locke said. “Export Control Reform requires a public-private partnership, and the business community’s insight on how that effort impacts the industrial base is vital.”
President’s Export Council (PEC) member Raul Predraza, Founder and President of Magno International L.P., will chair the PECSEA, which has scheduled its first meeting for March 10. Marion Blakey, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Aerospace Industries Association, will serve as the Vice Chair.
