"I am happy to share USTDA’s 2019 Annual Report, which highlights a record-setting year for the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). In 2019, USTDA reached new heights as our export multiplier grew to $111, meaning that every $1 invested by USTDA delivers $111 in exports. With $6.7 billion in new exports identified, 2019 was a banner year for business. Activities in 2019 included 23 reverse trade missions traveling through 81 cities with almost 2,000 participants from 1,459 companies. USTDA has numerous opportunities in 2020 to build upon our continued success, as noted with the activities below.
Please visit USTDA’s website to find open opportunities for U.S. companies to bid on overseas projects. U.S. companies can work on USTDA-funded opportunities overseas by submitting proposals to our host country grant recipients. These opportunities include feasibility studies, early investment analyses, technical assistance or training. For clarification, the point of contact for submitting any proposals is the USTDA grant recipient identified in the Request for Proposal, not USTDA. There are currently seven overseas projects available for bid in East Africa, Egypt, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nigeria, Brazil and Colombia.
