PROGRAM ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
The Office of Exporter Services (OEXS) is the Bureau of Export Administration's (BXA) front line unit in providing exporter counseling and plays a major role in guiding exporters through complex licensing transactions. Through a variety of seminar programs offered at locations throughout the United States, OEXS instructs and assists new and established exporters through basic and advanced level courses. OEXS also provides specialized workshops on topics of specific interest (e.g., commercial encryption licensing, chemical weapons regulations, export management systems and freight forwarder programs). In fiscal year 2001, we instructed over 6,000 exporters through 47 BXA sponsored export licensing seminars and workshops. In fiscal year 2002 we anticipate over 7,000 exporters will be counseled through 52 export licensing seminars. A planned increase in fiscal year 2003 to 58 export licensing seminars should allow us to instruct over 8,000 exporters. Through our headquarters in Washington, DC and our Western Regional Offices in Los Angeles and San Jose, California we provide one-on-one counseling 11 hours a day thorough meetings, telephone counseling sessions and responses to e-mail and fax inquiries.
