The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has launched a $70 million project to support local businesses in high-impact sectors and to help them boost their exports.
The five-year Trade and Investment Facilitation (TIF) project will be implemented by the international development company DAI Global.
“This project is designed to enhance economic opportunities by facilitating trade and investment in targeted business sectors, such as agro-food processing, manufacturing, tourism and hospitality, the knowledge economy and services,” said Mark Rostal, TIF’s Chief of Party at DAI Global.
