Gillibrand Appointed to Export Council
Washington, D.C. â U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand was appointed to the Presidentâs Export Council earlier this month.
Created in 1973, the Presidentâs Export Council is the United Statesâ primary advisory committee on international trade. Council members promote export expansion by providing a forum for remedying trade related problems. The council makes recommendations to the president, on matters relating to U.S. export trade, by conducting surveys and evaluating the expansion practices of the communities represented by its members.
Senator Gillibrand says she will use her position on the Presidentâs Export Council to ensure that the priorities of New Yorkâs economy, including manufacturing, agriculture, finance and research and development, are providing an expanded and competitive playing field.
