Kennedy Urges Farm Export Hike By 8AM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-President Kennedy urges American manufacturers and farmers to sell $2 billion more of their products abroad each year. Or, to put it the other way, he wants foreigners to buy $2 billion more of American goods. He says Americans could increase the total of exports if they looked beyond home markets, put more hard-sell into their efforts abroad, and if they lowered prices to meet competition from' other industrial countries. Foreigners presumably could find the money to buy more from us by buying less from our competitors, and by using more of the dollar assets they pile up from . sales of their goods and raw materials to us and from our foreign aid and other federal spending programs, and from dollars received as private investment overseas by Americans. In spite of all the forebodings about growing foreign competition, U.S. export totals have been growing year by year. They came to $20.5 billion in 1962. American business has been able to expand many of its markets and hold others because of . superior product, service, or efficiency of manufacturing and distribution. It has done so in the face of rising production costs at. home, sharply contrasted to generally lower production costs (particularly labor) in the last rising industrial lands of Western Europe and Japan. The rub has come from this: While the total of exports has grown, the share of the world's markets has fallen. U.S. exports were still expanding, but those of other nations were increasing much faster. Rising wages and other production costs in Europe have led many Americans to believe that the price advantage some European products have'in world markets was shrinking.. But statistics issued by the Commission of the European Economic Community show that while prices paid by the consumers in Europe are rising, the prices on exported goods have gone up very little. President Kennedy has told Aferican producers they might try the same thing—boost exports by producing more and keeping prices low, instead of the other way around. Union Tank Co.
