May 22, 2011 - PRLog -- California ETEC was awarded the Presidential “E” Award for Export Service by U.S.  Department of Commerce Secretary Gary Locke at the Department’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. on May 16th, 2011.  The “E” Awards are the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.

The recruitment of international students to California and U.S. campuses has been our exclusive focus the past 5 years, and we are honored to receive the “ E” Award, said Mark Matsumoto, President and CEO.   Since 2006,  California ETEC has provided a platform for US education and training providers to recruit international students and delivery education programs throughout Asia.  California ETEC provides an array of free and cost-effective services for education providers to expand their international student recruitment or develop new international linkages.  

The export of education services generates more than $19 billion dollars in exports for the U.S.  and contributes nearly $ 3 billion dollars to local economy in California.   Moreover, revenues from international student tuition and overseas program delivery are increasingly counted upon to make up for shortfalls in public and private education funding in the United States.  

“Exports are a key driver of America’s economic recovery,” said Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke.  “President Obama’s National Export Initiative(NEI), which aims to double U.S. exports by 2015 in support of several million American jobs, is a robust, forward-looking trade agenda with an emphasis on domestic job growth.  California ETEC is being honored for making significant contributions toward fulfilling that agenda. “

A business client of the Department’s U.S. Commercial Service,  California ETEC has benefitted from business matchmaking services to greatly expand its export sales.   California ETEC demonstrated a substantial increase in the volume of exports over a four-year period,  a major criteria for the award.
