The new USTDA website utilizes a responsive platform, meaning that the landing page now displays content consistently, no matter what device visitors are using - desktop, laptop, mobile phone or tablet. Now visitors can navigate the site more easily and locate content more quickly.
"The Agency's mission of connecting U.S. businesses and overseas project sponsors is so critical that we wanted to ensure that we were representing our work in the most convenient way possible for our stakeholders," said Thomas R. Hardy, USTDA's Director of Public Relations and Congressional Affairs. "President Obama's Digital Strategy Initiative provided an important framework for the development of the new site."
Finally, the new USTDA.gov features access to a prioritized list of Application Programming Interfaces (API), a set of tools or requirements that allow applications and websites to communicate. APIs make it possible for entities like the International Trade Administration and BusinessUSA to automatically consume data being provided by USTDA.gov and then display that information in a user-friendly format on their respective websites. Application developers can now utilize USTDA's APIs to create software that can alert U.S. exporters of overseas procurement opportunities.
You can find the new website at USTDA.gov. Over the months to come, the Agency will continue to make updates that aim to better serve its partners at home and abroad.
