by | Mar 3, 2015 | Articles

President Obama is announcing a set of new executive actions to help increase exports from rural areas and to provide new markets to small businesses across our nation’s heartland. As part of the President’s “Made in Rural America” initiative launched in February 2014, the Administration is bringing together federal resources to help rural businesses and communities take advantage of new investment opportunities and access additional markets at home and abroad. As part of the Obama Administration’s long-term, sustained effort to build jobs and economic security in rural America, the White House Rural Council has hosted a series of regional forums across the country to connect rural leaders and businesses with resources to expand exports and to identify barriers to exporting for rural businesses
