Members of the Biotechnology Industry group "BIO" point to a new report they say shows advanced biofuels are key to creating new jobs and revitalizing the U.S. economy.
The Report says the development of the industry could produce more than 140-billion dollars in economic growth by the year 2030, including the direct creation of as many as 29-thousand jobs by the year 2012; while reducing U.S petroleum imports by about 5-point-5 billion dollars by the same year, and by nearly 70-billion dollars by the year 2022.

The Export-Import Bank of the United States -the Ex-Im Bank - says it will start a partnership with Google to help American small and mid-sized businesses harness the power of the Internet to initiate or expand sales outside of the country.

The Chairman and President of the Ex-Im Bank Fred Hochberg specifically points to use of the search engine in helping achieve President Obama's goal of doubling U.S. exports within the next five years, while at the same time putting more Americans to work producing them.
Head of Acquisitions at US-Google Stuart Small says, there are now more than 1.2 billion people online worldwide, and many of them are ready and able to buy and research online.
