October 4, 2021

(USTDA) 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 is now generating an average of $117 in U.S. exports for every dollar it programs toward advancing infrastructure projects in emerging markets.

The Agency’s programs have now supported more than $76 billion in U.S. exports, helping companies create good-paying jobs, including small businesses from more than 350 communities across the United States. In fiscal year 2021 alone, USTDA identified more than $2.3 billion in U.S. exports to emerging economies as a result of programming that facilitated early-stage infrastructure development.

“These results speak to USTDA’s unique mission and value proposition to U.S. industry and emerging markets around the world,” said Enoh T. Ebong, USTDA’s Acting Director. “Our goal is to set the standard for the delivery of American foreign assistance, which we are achieving thanks to USTDA’s talented staff, our dedicated overseas partners, and the innovation of U.S. businesses and workers whose ‘Made-in-USA’ solutions are second to none.”
