USTDA
Promoting U.S. Exports, Developing Overseas Infrastructure
USTDA connects the U.S. private sector to infrastructure projects in emerging markets. We achieve our mission by funding feasibility studies, technical assistance and pilot projects that integrate the innovation and expertise of American companies. We also connect overseas project sponsors with U.S. partners through our reverse trade missions, industry conferences and expert workshops. In 2019, every $1 USTDA invested in its programs generated $111 in U.S. exports. USTDA has facilitated $73 billion in U.S. exports since its founding in 1992, supporting 4,000 infrastructure activities in 139 countries.
