About 38 million jobs, or one out of five persons in private employment, is engaged in activities linked to foreign trade, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Foreign trade today affects almost every person in the world. It enables each country to make the best use of its most abundant resources. By selling its surplus, whether it's a raw material such as coal, a semifinished product like cotton stuffs, or finished products like computers, a country earns the money to import another nation's surplus. Foreign trade involves the building of offices or plants in foreign countries, sending technical or other specialists abroad, and expanding the distribution of a product into the international market.
