The unit says they specifically offer U.S. companies a wide and deep knowledge of markets and industries; a unique global network; inventive use of information technology; a focus on small and mid-size businesses; and the clout and cachet of the U.S. government. “The Commercial Service shall place primary emphasis on the promotion of exports of goods and services from the United States, particularly by small businesses and medium-sized businesses, and on the protection of United States business interests abroad,” said the unit’s mission statement.
