National Foreign Trade Council

An early advocate for global trade, U.S. Steel President James A. Farrell founded the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) in 1914. Today, it is the only U.S. business organization solely focused on advocating for the international trade and public policy priorities of its members. This includes addressing topics like investment, tax and export finance, as well as human resource management.

Currently, the NFTC is heavily involved in advocating to reform the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) dispute settlement system. Review the organization’s latest position paper and sign up  to receive the NFTC’s weekly Trade Matter newsletter or to join the organization.
