Subject The article analyzes the efficiency of legal and business models of national foreign trade through trade commissioners. Objectives The article presents my own interpretation of the improvement of commercial and intergovernmental trade and economic cooperation by prioritizing mandates in two levels. Methods The research applies regulatory and comprehensive approaches to studying methods and models the State uses to support export. I also involve general research and special methods, such as retrospective, systems, functional-structural analysis, observation, classification, instrumental techniques for grouping, sampling, comparison and generalization, evolutionary and dynamic analysis. Results I review the Trade for All strategy, which guides the trade and economic cooperation of trade commissioners in the European Union with foreign partners. Illustrating the case of Germany, USA and Russia, I also examine and compare the current model of governmental institutions and other centers supporting export and investment abroad by the priority principle. The article provides a detailed account of the way trade institutions of different countries operate. Having analyzed their business and legal structure, financial statements, design, scope of authority and independence, I identified their similarities, difference and efficiency. Conclusions and Relevance Export will be effectively supported by the State if the State further promotes the institution of trade commissioners following the prioritized segregation of authority. Trade missions of the Russian Federation should be mandated to represent the government and coordinate governmental policy and strategy for developing international trade ties, however, without intervening directly into operations of various public authorities representing the private sector.
