The Future of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA)

May 11, 2017 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT
USTDA has requested a 2017 budget of $80.7 million. While the Trump Administration has targeted USTDA for elimination, USTDA has received a 25 percent budget increase. The agency boasts an export multiplier of $85 for every $1 spent on programs, but will it remain a relevant, useful vehicle for furthering U.S. interests? This discussion hopes to answer some key questions about the future of USTDA.
