International Outlook: Global Wrapup

TRADE

New but little-noticed guidelines for American embassies approved by the Bush Administration could boost U.S. exporters. Under long-standing practice, U.S. diplomats and Commerce Dept. officials could not go to bat for an American company bidding on an overseas contract if rival bids from foreign suppliers included even minor U.S. participation.

Officials say the change will be particularly helpful in the Middle East and Latin America.Edited by Stanley Reed
