Export Opportunities at Development Agencies
International development agencies offer many opportunities for exporters. Here are a few sources to explore.

Multilateral Development Banks
Multilateral development banks (MDBs) are institutions that provide financial support and professional advice for economic and social development activities in developing countries. The term multilateral development bank typically refers to the World Bank Group or four regional development banks: the African Development Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the InterAmerican Development Bank.

Development projects funded by these banks often offer export opportunities. The U.S. Department of Commerce maintains liaison offices with each of the MDBs in an effort to provide information to U.S. companies on procurements for these projects. To learn more about a particular MDB, please contact the U.S. Commercial Service Advocacy Center or visit export.gov/advocacy.

Congressional Budget Justification of the U.S. Agency for International Development  (http://www.1.usa.gov/1vwR01l)

Published by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business, the annual Budget Justification to the Congress contains individual reports on the countries to which USAID will provide funds in the coming year, as well as detailed information on past funding activities in each country. Because the initiatives require U.S. goods and services, these reports give U.S. exporters an early look at upcoming projects. Current and past years’ budget justifications are  available online.
