Virtual Introduction to The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) - USTDA Project Preparation and Partnership Building Tools for US Companies
Aug 19, 2021 / 10:00 - 11:00

Dear AmCham Members and Friends,

Meet with US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) managers to learn more about tools to support US commercial opportunities in the energy, information communications technology (ICT), transport, healthcare, and agribusiness sectors in Indonesia.

AmCham Indonesia cordially invites you to get to know USTDA’s representatives in South East Asia and the partnership-building tools they have prepared for the region. Our main speaker for this event will be Brandon Megorden, USTDA Regional Manager for Asia. This virtual event will be held on August 19, starting at 10:00 AM.

The USTDA is the US government’s international project planning agency and engages the US private sector in infrastructure projects and procurement planning at the critical early stages when the project requirements and technology options are being defined. USTDA’s tools include feasibility studies and technical assistance grants, pilot project grants, training grants, and reverse trade missions.

The USTDA is very open to collaborating with private sector companies and invites grant proposals for project preparation activities. It recently opened the floor to proposals for its Global Partnership for Climate-Smart Infrastructure, which is aimed at supporting the development of clean energy and transportation projects in developing and middle-income countries. This event can be a great opportunity for you to take a glimpse at potential international projects that your company can take part in.

Get to know more about the USTDA and the projects it has in store at our event!
