    Health Information Technology (Health IT) has the potential to be one of the world’s most transformative industries over the next few years. The use of electronic health records to comprehensively collect and organize patient information, remote monitoring and telemedicine services to treat patients, and the use of statistical and analytical tools to determine the best course of treatment for both individual patients and entire populations of citizens, represent a few examples of how Health IT can have a significant impact on the health care sector in the future.

    Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries face challenges similar to those in the United States regarding delivery of health care, such as adequately and efficiently addressing a patient’s health condition, while maximizing cost effectiveness. Given that many TPP countries have health care systems at a relatively early stage of development, U.S. exports of Health IT product and service solutions provide a tremendous opportunity for these countries to quickly deliver improved health care to their citizens. Provisions in the TPP regarding pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and medical supplies, in conjunction with increased deployment of Health IT, will lead to critical improvements in the health care sector among all TPP countries, saving thousands of lives daily.

    The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is expanding its investments in sustainable energy projects across sub-Saharan Africa.  An implementing agency of the U.S. government’s Power Africa initiative, USTDA invests in project preparation activities designed to generate renewable and gas-fired power, modernize electric grids and increase energy efficiency.  The Agency’s programs are available to help African project sponsors prepare bankable clean energy projects.

    Interested project sponsors in sub-Saharan Africa – or U.S. companies working with African project sponsors – should submit their project concepts to USTDA no later than February 19, 2016 to be considered for funding. To learn more about the Agency’s project proposal process, please visit: http://www.ustda.gov/proposals.

    Power Africa is a U.S. presidential initiative that addresses one of the most pressing challenges to sustainable economic growth and development in sub-Saharan Africa – access to electrical power.  President Obama launched Power Africa to bring together technical and legal experts, the private sector and governments from around the world to increase the number of people with access to power.  Power Africa aims to increase installed power capacity by more than 30,000 MW and create at least 60 million new connections by 2030.  USTDA’s investments under Power Africa provide critical early-stage planning to advance new power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure.

    TPP Made in AmericaThe Trans-Pacific Partnership TPP unlocks opportunities for U.S. small and medium-sized businesses, which are the backbone of the U.S. economy. By addressing trade barriers that are particularly challenging for small businesses to navigate, TPP allows our small businesses to reach new markets in the Asia-Pacific region.

    Eliminating foreign taxes in the form of tariffs across the TPP region. These barriers can price out of foreign markets many of the goods and agricultural products made by U.S. small businesses.

    Making it cheaper, easier, and faster for businesses to get their products to market by creating efficient and transparent customs procedures that help move goods quickly through borders.
