Arlington, VA –Today, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency announced a record-breaking return on investment and the highest since its founding in 1992. USTDA now generates an average of $136 in U.S. exports for every dollar it programs toward advancing infrastructure projects in emerging economies. Since its inception, the Agency has supported more than $115 billion in U.S. exports, helping companies create good-paying jobs across the United States.
“USTDA is the only foreign assistance agency that has a mandate to support U.S. jobs through exports. Our dual mission is unique. Not only are we developing sustainable, high-quality infrastructure in emerging economies, but we are also delivering measurable results for U.S. businesses and workers,” said Enoh T. Ebong, USTDA’s Director. “Our 30 years of experience and success are critical assets toward implementing numerous foreign policy priorities of the Biden-Harris Administration, including the Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment and tackling the climate crisis.”
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency helps companies create U.S. jobs through the export of U.S. goods and services for priority infrastructure projects in emerging economies. USTDA links U.S. businesses to export opportunities by funding project preparation and partnership building activities that develop sustainable infrastructure and foster economic growth in partner countries.
