ARLINGTON, VA – The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is teaming up with export, trade and finance related agencies across the federal government during World Trade Month - May 2013 - to host a series of Twitter Q&A's for U.S. companies. Businesses can participate by tweeting their questions using the hashtag #TradeChat during the scheduled times.

This Twitter chat series will provide U.S. companies with exporting solutions, including information on the resources available to begin or expand exporting goods and services to overseas markets. The Twitter chats will also provide an opportunity for firms to ask questions and connect directly with the U.S. government agencies that support President Obama's National Export Initiative (NEI) and BusinessUSA.gov, a new one-stop resource for small businesses and exporters.
