USjournal and the U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to increase awareness in U.S. education and training professionals about exporting education and the tools and resources our organizations provide to help them succeed.
We've enjoyed working with Commerce over the years on a number of different projects, noted USjournal's C.I.E.O. Cheryl DarrupBoychuck. Now with this formal affiliation, we look forward to many more years of productive collaboration, to ultimately advance the United States as the premier education destination for students around the world.
Under the MOA, USjournal and the U.S. Commercial Service's network of worldwide offices will work together on marketing, education programs and events leveraging both entities' expertise to help make U.S. organizations more export savvy. Joint activities may include building awareness through outreach at trade shows, direct mail campaigns and online registration for resource support.
In 2010, President Obama announced the National Export Initiative (NEI) with the goal of doubling U.S. exports by the end of 2014. The partnership supports this goal by educating U.S. exporters, particularly small- and medium-sized companies, about the benefits exporting and expanding their exports to additional markets, and the public and private sector resources to assist them. USjournal joins several of the U.S. Commercial Service's Strategic Partners who have connected more than 1,500 companies and organizations to federal export assistance.
USjournal is dedicated to promoting the export of U.S. education and training, primarily via the online presence of USjournal.com and its family of 16 independent, multi-lingual domains.
