Export Strategy Working Group
Growing the Supply Chain globally means being able to (1) participate in projects globally to maximize US content, and (2) working with the US Government (USG) to ensure that products and services can be legally exported to foreign nuclear projects. To address global marketing and increasing US content worldwide, UNI has established the Export Strategy Working Group (ESWG).
Internationally, US Supply Chain community is at a significant disadvantage within the world Supply Chain market, competing against foreign subsidies, foreign unfair competition practices, theft of intellectual property, and exclusionary foreign nuclear market alliances.
UNI is also developing a plan for growing the U.S. Supply Chain business globally. This plan will include such considerations as:
- Establishing a global market intelligence collaboration with U.S. Government agencies, and members on global Supply Chain opportunities, and to cover/report on at selected conferences;
- Achieving a more effective information flow (gathered, assessed, and shared), and providing the U.S. government (State Department and Commerce Department) with a “point-of-contact” for dissemination of global Supply Chain business opportunities to our Members;
- Improving the success of future trade missions by active UNI participation and in assisting Members with developing Supply Chain trade and marketing strategies;
- Working to create a global market “product differentiation” standard that “If you want it done right – buy American” emphasizing that the U.S. Supply Chain community’s “DNA” is Quality, Quality, Quality (On-Schedule, On-Budget, and Honor Commitments).
- Working with the U.S. Congress and Federal agencies to analyze foreign competitive export strategies from a lessons-learned perspective (China, Russia, Korea, Japan, Canada, France) and to establish reasonable targets for country/product exports, and American content versus local content.
- Forming Supplier-centric working groups to target and coordinate/prioritize selected areas for development where a semi-level playing field already exists: Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; India; Poland; and South Africa.
- Improving the Supply Chain community competitive strategies’ such as leveraging U.S. EX-IM Bank support.
