Watch, Discuss, Engage at 12:30: Secretary Locke on the National Export Initiative

Chat with Commerce Secretary Gary Locke following up on the President's address to the Export-Import Bank’s Annual Conference.

Often overlooked in day-to-day political discussions, the opportunities for economic recovery through imports and exports, moving American goods around the world, should never be underestimated.  Along those lines, during his State of the Union address, the President set a goal of doubling exports over the next five years – an increase that will support two million additional jobs here at home.  At 11:15PM EST today, the President will address the Export-Import Bank's Annual Conference today to elaborate on his vision and approach, which has also been a focus of every trip he has taken since taking office.   Following up on the President's speech we're happy to welcome Commerce Secretary Gary Locke at 12:30 for a live online video chat where he'll take your questions on the President's remarks and policies.
