The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy is interested in receiving feedback from small businesses and their representatives regarding their views on trade agreements being negotiated with Japan, the European Union and the United Kingdom, and their experience doing business in any of these markets. The Office of Advocacy is tasked with producing a report to Congress evaluating the economic impacts of these trade agreements in negotiations regarding small businesses, particularly in the services, manufacturing and agriculture sectors, as well as highlighting small business priorities, opportunities and challenges.

Please provide your feedback to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy by emailing your name, company, industry and business size (number of employees) to AdvoTradeFeedback@sba.gov.

Hoosier businesses are also invited to attend an outreach meeting on these trade agreements in Columbus, Ohio on March 26 from 9 a.m. to noon; the location is the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, Mason Hall, 2nd Floor Mason Rotunda, at 250 W. Woodruff Ave. in Columbus. Register for the event here.
