U.S. Trade and Development Agency
Launches New Web Site

May 19, 1999

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (TDA) has launched the agency's new website, which allows American exporters to more effectively plug in to the latest international commercial opportunities.

"One of TDA's main missions is to promote the use of technology to make business around the world more effective. This website is TDA's way of putting our time and innovation where our mouth is," said TDA's Director J. Joseph Grandmaison.

The new features on TDA's website will arm U.S. exporters with exactly the type of information they need to remain competitive in this tough global market and provide the early assistance that allows American companies to get involved in major international infrastructure and industrial projects.

These features include:

* A free e-mail subscription to the TDA Pipeline, a bi-weekly publication featuring the latest projects up for competition among U.S. companies as well as contact information for studies underway and those recently completed;

* A frequently updated on-line newsletter;

* A searchable library that includes information on how to order completed feasibility study reports, billion-dollar reports for suppliers of equipment for international infrastructure projects;

* On-line brochures for the latest TDA deal-making conferences;

* Up-to-the-minute press releases;

* Job Announcements.

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency assists in the creation of jobs for Americans by helping U.S. companies pursue overseas business opportunities. Through the funding of feasibility studies, orientation visits, training grants, conference and various other forms of technical assistance, TDA enables American businesses to become involved in the planning stages of infrastructure and industrial projects in middle-income and developing countries.
