NES Global Infrastructure Development
Across the globe, there is significant need for infrastructure improvement in many critical sectors, from energy, to health, to transportation, and more. The climate crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and rapidly shifting demographic trends of urbanization and population growth have exacerbated these needs.
Many countries turn to the U.S. private sector for world-class infrastructure services that can meet the infrastructure needs of emerging economies. U.S. exports can deliver more than just goods and services to foreign markets—they can also deliver solutions to the biggest development challenges of our time.
The U.S. Government has a long history of providing quality financing and technical support for infrastructure projects around the world.
The NES Global Infrastructure Development chapter outlines:
- Leveraging U.S. trade finance and investment programs
- Promoting fairness and transparency in public procurements
- Improving interagency coordination to support early stage and active deals
- Promoting commercial advocacy; and increasing domestic outreach.
