2023 New & Returning Member Promotion
Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) help keep jobs in the U.S. by way of promoting and encouraging companies to manufacture and produce products in the U.S. rather than offshoring. FTZs employ over 480,000 people with 356 active production zones across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Though the FTZ program had a record number of merchandise received in 2021 since 2013, the program faces constant threats that have the potential of effecting all companies, both large and small, and all those employed at an FTZ.
