What is the TPCC and what can it do for me?
The Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC) is an interagency task force that ensures the coordination and development of a government-wide export promotion plan. It is made up of 20 agencies with a core of 7 agencies:
This committee is chaired by the Secretary of Commerce and the Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade.
The TPCC has four main customer service initiatives:
- Training – Trade specialists are trained as account managers that are aware of all TPCC agency programs and can assist in guiding you to the agency that can best assist you.
- Marketing – Export information is disseminated through a variety of programs, such as Export.gov, USA export pavillion, and the Ex-Im/SBA joint outreach program.
- Program Integration – The TPCC agencies work together in providing services to US companies, such as Ex-IM/SBA Working Capital Coguarantee and the Joint CS-State Partner Post Program.
- Information Sharing – Agency databases are shared with other TPCC agencies through system integrations, allowing the TPCC to provide U.S. companies with the most accurate and relevant information quickly.
