USTDA CELEBRATES MAKING GLOBAL LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS DURING WORLD TRADE MONTH
ARLINGTON, VA – The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) will celebrate its partnership with 35 state and local trade promotion organizations formed through the Agency's Making Global Local initiative during World Trade Month.
Throughout May, USTDA will leverage its social media platforms to promote the export and trade-related services that its Making Global Local partner organizations offer to U.S. companies across the country. The Agency's goal is to showcase the local and federal resources, as well as business opportunities, available to current and future U.S. exporters.
How to follow USTDA's World Trade Month conversations on Twitter: Visit USTDA on Twitter and use both the #MakingGlobalLocal and #WorldTradeMonth hashtags in Tweets and searches.
Making Global Local connects companies across the country to USTDA's export promotion programs through strategic partnerships between the Agency and local economic development organizations. By understanding USTDA's programs and priorities, these partner organizations can help companies throughout the United States identify sales opportunities in emerging markets through various USTDA-funded activities. Additionally, USTDA can incorporate the local market intelligence gained through its partnerships into the planning process for future events and activities.
