WASHINGTON — Francisco Sánchez, undersecretary of international trade at the U.S. Commerce Department, who has promoted U.S. apparel and textile production under a Made in America campaign for the past few years, on Tuesday told employees at the International Trade Administration, which he oversees, that he will be stepping down this fall, according to an internal memo.
Sánchez, who was named to the post by President Obama in late-March 2010 in a recess appointment, said he will be returning to the private sector, but did not give any further details. He also told employees he will stay on until “later this fall” to oversee the consolidation of ITA from four business units into three and participate in the first SelectUSA Summit in Washington on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 that will bring together leading public and private sector officials from around the world to discuss the benefits of investing in the U.S.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
