Global Chamber® and U.S. Trade and Development Agency

by Kim Bridges

gc-us-trade-dev-agencyGlobal Chamber® announces a new partnership relationship with the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). Through its Making Global Local initiative, the USTDA assists U.S.-based businesses in their global business growth by establishing links between business and foreign project sponsors, bringing private-sector solutions to development challenges abroad.

Global Chamber and 25 of its U.S.-based chapters are joining this initiative to help members access global markets with less risk. Last year, the USTDA reverse trade missions program connected nearly 700 U.S. firms to foreign decision makers across 69 American cities. We’re expanding the success of the program!

“This is just an amazing program that provides tangible results. We are excited to work closely with USTDA to actively engage our members with cross-border opportunities that will help them expand their business outside of the U.S.,” says Doug Bruhnke, CEO and founder of Global Chamber.

“We’re extremely proud that Making Global Local has grown into the Agency’s largest domestic outreach campaign,” says Ashley E. Chang, USTDA’s director of public engagement. “Partnering with Global Chamber will help us connect a greater number of businesses in more U.S. communities with export-promotion programs by USTDA.”

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency helps companies create U.S. jobs through the export of U.S. goods and services for priority development projects in emerging economies. USTDA links U.S. businesses to export opportunities by funding project planning activities, pilot projects and reverse trade missions while creating sustainable infrastructure and economic growth in partner countries.
