It also represents and advocates on behalf of U.S. industry interests with regard to the exercise and enforcement of U.S. rights under bilateral and multilateral trade agreements.

Global Markets – ITA advances U.S. commercial interests by engaging with U.S. businesses that export to foreign countries; expands U.S. exports by developing and implementing policies and programs to increase U.S. access to and presence in foreign markets; provides market contacts, knowledge, opportunities and customized solutions to U.S. firms and expands foreign investment into the United States by promoting the United States as the investment destination.
