Reverse Trade Missions bring foreign buyers to the United States, pending an upcoming procurement, in order to observe the design, manufacture, demonstration and operation of U.S. products and services that can help them achieve their development goals. These strategically planned missions also present excellent opportunities for U.S. businesses to establish or enhance relationships with prospective overseas customers.
In 2013 USTDA funded 24 reverse trade missions that introduced U.S. company representatives to key foreign decision-makers, including senior governmental and private sector officials from high-growth markets. The reverse trade mssions target current and near-team business opportunies, often creating immediate results and export successes for U.S. businesses.
