Washington, DC - The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) today applauded the Administration's announcement of a comprehensive export control system review. NFTC President Bill Reinsch, a former Under Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration in the Clinton Administration, released the following statement:

"The President's announcement is good news because export control reform is long overdue. But export control reviews are frequently announced, occasionally begun, and never completed. The really good news will be when it is finished. I have every confidence that will happen and look forward to providing input into the process."
