As a key part of the interagency advocacy and outreach process, the Department assisted over 180 U.S. companies to ensure transparency and fair play in foreign government procurements and other actions; promote market access and reform; and expand business promotion activities. The Department assisted over 75 U.S. companies seeking foreign government procurement, advised over 50 companies involved in aviation services, and consulted regularly with 30 biotech groups and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) associations. Advocacy with foreign telecom regulators alone saved $125 million for U.S. business. Three aviation liberalization agreements were also concluded to expand markets for U.S. firms.
