Entrepreneurs are people who take on some sort of risk as they try to innovate in order to exploit a business opportunity.  They are the pioneers of business who try (and sometimes fail) to do things that have not been done before.  Entrepreneurs are, therefore, very important in promoting imports and exports.  They hunt for opportunities to make money by importing and/or exporting.  Because they are constantly trying to find new business ventures, they come up with lots of new ideas for (in this case) importing and exporting.  By doing so, they drive the growth of importing and exporting.
