Support U.S. small business growth overseas. Virtually all foreign countries support their own small businesses when operating overseas. U.S. agencies like DoD, USAID, State Department and USTDA clearly favor doing business with large U.S. companies, but small contracts, ideal for U.S. small businesses are instead given to foreign companies despite lower bids and good solutions. The same rules that apply to small businesses in the U.S. should equally apply to small business efforts overseas. If Chinese, French and Russian policy favors their own, why can't U.S. policy do the same? Shame on America! Missed opportunity for us all!!!!
