 Making Global Local
Making Global Local is USTDA’s touchpoint program, matching businesses in every corner of the United States with new customers and development opportunities in emerging, high‐growth overseas markets. This invaluable resource builds relationships of trust, joining together entities at home and
around the world who might otherwise never connect.
MGL streamlines USTDA’s ability to share and support new global procurement opportunities at the local level, giving the program a two-way capability to reach an alliance of partners. MGL partners share business opportunities with U.S. companies in their communities and share USTDA’s global business opportunities at the local level. This collaboration creates a pipeline of opportunity and information — literally making global local.
In 2020, MGL added 15 new partners, now totaling more than 90 partners across 35 states that participate in
the full range of USTDA’s export-promotion programs, including reverse trade missions, business briefings and overseas workshops.
This initiative supports the creation of U.S. jobs by connecting the state and local level with USTDA’s export- promotion programs. Through MGL, the Agency forges innovative partnerships with business development and trade promotion organizations — connecting U.S. companies and technologies with developing nations across the globe.
