Washington, DC – The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) has made its Facebook debut. NFTC’s new Facebook page will be updated regularly to include all press releases, relevant news articles, upcoming events and important announcements. Additionally, it may be used in the future as a forum for discussions about trade- and tax-related issues and current events. Its purpose, therefore, is twofold: to provide up-to-date information from the NFTC and to facilitate discussion and promote dialogue about the NFTC’s most pertinent issues.

We invite you to be part of our Facebook community.

It’s easy! Follow the three steps below to become a “fan” of the NFTC’s Faceook page:

(1) Go to the Facebook Web site –
(2) Go to the Search tab in the top right-hand corner and type in “National Foreign Trade Council.”
(3) A thumbprint of NFTC’s page will appear on the screen. Click “Become a fan” to the right of the NFTC logo.

Once you’ve done that, NFTC’s page will be automatically linked to your personal Facebook profile, so you can check it as often as you’d like. To post something in response to a news update or press release, simply write on the NFTC Facebook wall and click “Share” once you’re finished.
