Washington, DC – The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) today re-launched its Web site – – with a new structure, tools and features. The site was redesigned in an effort to streamline NFTC information and resources, and maximize accessibility and value for members, policymakers and others interested in learning more about the association's initiatives and advocacy efforts.

"The NFTC has been advocating for an open-rules based trading system for 95 years, and while our guiding principles and priorities have not changed, we recognize the value of developing tools that help make the association more accessible," said NFTC President Bill Reinsch. "The Web site is one of the most important communications tools we have to complement our advocacy efforts. It will be increasingly valuable as we continue to press for passage of the pending free trade agreements, and the development of international tax, visa, sanctions and export controls policies that maximize the competitiveness of U.S. companies and workers."

The revamped site features a streamlined design, which allows visitors to easily locate up-to-date information about the NFTC's key policy priorities: Trade Policy, Tax Policy, International Human Resources, Innovation, Visa Policy and Sanctions and Export Controls. The Trade Policy section features the following issues: Bilateral and Regional Trade, WTO Issues, Middle East Free Trade Coalition, Trade Adjustment Assistance, Trade Preference Programs and Climate Change.

The site also allows users to locate news, publications and other resources by issue area. All of the NFTC's publications on a variety of policy issues can be found easily in the Newsroom section of the site. In addition, site visitors can subscribe to RSS feeds to receive updates on NFTC press releases and events, and links to news articles featuring the NFTC.
