What does USSEC look for in a potential trade market?

IARN — The one lesson that we have really driven home since the pandemic, is that we cannot have all our trade eggs in one basket. When China shut down, we had to find places to make up that market share that was dwindling. To that end, we had to look towards the trading partners we already had, and also look to new and emerging markets that would allow us to diversify our portfolio while still moving products out of the United States.
