National Export Initiative: Effective January 2010, the President of the United States of America announced the National Export Initiative which calls
for the doubling of U.S. exports to foreign markets within the next five years. Thus far, the program has produced phenomenal results with U.S. exports reaching a
historic and record high US $2.2 Trillion for year 2012. Naturally, this exporting boom has been led by the state of Texas with small and medium-size
businesses acting as major contributors in this current economic expansion.
