How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The President's Export Council (PEC) provides advice and policy recommendations on exporting. Its primary function is to advise the President on export trade matters. The PEC advocates export expansion and explores options for the improvement of trade relationships with the global trading partners of the United States.
How is membership balanced?*The Council membership consists of up to 28 private-sector members representing a range of sectors active in export trade, including small and large business, services, agriculture, capital goods, consumer goods, process industries, strategic industries, high-technology and basic industries, as well as labor. The diversity of the membership allows the Council to provide the President with a consensus of views on trade from all segments of the economy. Additionally, Five United States Senators and five Members of the House of Representatives are appointed to the PEC by the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House, respectively. Seventeen Executive Branch members serve by virtue of their office and include the Secretaries of Commerce, Agriculture, Energy, Homeland Security, Labor, State, Treasury, and Transportation; the United States Trade Representative; the Chairman of the Export-Import Bank of the United States; the Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration; the Director of the United States Trade and Development Agency; the President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation; the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors; the Director of the Office of Management and Budget; the Director of the National Economic Council; and Director of the National Security Staff. The heads, or their designees, of the National Governors Association and the United States Conference of Mayors are also members of the PEC.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Council typically meets two times a year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The President's Export Council is the only national advisory committee on export expansion and the only one that encourages export expansion in the private sector. The Council also makes recommendations on broad, national policies and programs affecting trade. Other trade-related committees exist with a narrower focus on trade negotiations, and most offer advice only on specific industry or sectoral matters. The Council is the only advisory committee on trade whose membership includes all the major actors in the trade field: representatives from the Administration, the Congress, industry, agriculture, and labor. Therefore, it is the only forum that allows for discussion and debate among these various factions prior to providing advice to the President. Because of the Council's unique membership, high-visibility, and access to policymakers, it can be a more credible and effective advocacy group than other advisory groups. The companies represented also have considerable resources to do research and other work gratis. Hiring consultants to do this same work would cost the Government considerably more.
Why close or partially close meetings?The Council strives to keep its deliberations open to the public. In order to provide the President with informed advice, the Council is briefed by top-level Administration officials on trade and economic policy and related programs and negotiations. Sometimes the information provided to the Council from these sources must be kept confidential for national security or foreign policy considerations.
Recommendation RemarksAccording to the charter, the President must designate a Chairman and Vice Chairman from among the private sector members. Although the President has made a handful of appointments over the past few weeks, he has not designated a Chairman nor Vice Chairman. For this reason, the role of Chairperson was intentionally left blank in the FACA database.
