To assist U.S. manufacturers in the areas of trade and import/export, the International Trade Administration assigns country desk officers to every country in the world. These specialists collect information on a specific country's regulations, tariffs, business practices, and political and economic climate, and may provide selected industry sector analyses for that country as well.

Hong Kong, Ireland, Canada, and Mexico are leading exporters of manufactured goods to the United States. For information on manufacturing, contact:
