(OPIC)  WASHINGTON, D.C. –The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) has selected Hamman Marketing Associates of Johnson City, TN, an international consulting and business development firm, to serve as an originator for a growing alliance with the private sector designed to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) expanding into emerging markets overseas.

The alliance, the Enterprise Development Network (EDN), is expanding the ability of OPIC – the U.S. government agency charged with facilitating U.S. private sector investment in emerging markets – to provide financing to SMEs doing business in developing countries.

Through the support of financial institutions, business consultants, associations, law firms and regional investment promotion agencies, EDN is designed to enhance SME access to OPIC products and services. By empowering such service providers, the network is resulting in more efficient, cost-effective delivery of services to American businesses.

Hamman Marketing Associates was established in 1999, and is an international consulting and business development firm with considerable experience in the Middle East and North Africa. The firm has provided services on USAID-funded development projects in Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia.
