Arlington, Virginia – The U.S. Trade and Development Agency today announced the launch of its new website, which includes the full range of advanced design, user-friendly functionality and expansive availability of opportunities for U.S. industry and overseas partners. The new site will more easily connect U.S. companies and their innovative technologies and solutions with overseas infrastructure development opportunities.
“USTDA’s new website visually and comprehensively demonstrates how our programming directly benefits U.S. companies, supports our overseas partners and achieves our global mission of supporting both increased U.S. exports and sustainable economic development in our partner countries,” said Thomas R. Hardy, USTDA’s Acting Director. “This is where the work of our Agency comes alive for the benefit of our partners all across the country and all around the world.”
U.S. companies interested in working on USTDA-funded opportunities can visit the “Work With Us” section of the website, which now features a more streamlined process for obtaining Requests for Proposals for overseas feasibility studies and learning more about the Agency’s array of technical assistance.
USTDA’s new site also offers a dynamic set of new tools that allow visitors to explore USTDA’s portfolio by region (Indo-Pacific; Latin America and the Caribbean; Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Eurasia; and Sub-Saharan Africa); sector (Agribusiness, Energy, Healthcare, Telecommunications and Transportation); and special initiative (Global Procurement Initiative, Making Global Local and U.S. Gas Infrastructure Exports Initiative). Highlighted on these pages are corresponding success stories, project opportunities and upcoming events.
The Agency specifically noted that visitors should update their bookmarks as necessary. To explore the new website, visit ustda.gov.
