USTDA and More

We bring more than a decade of international experience in matching companies and governments from the world’s emerging markets together with U.S. market leaders.

PHM International is proud to be one of a few contracted companies that organize and facilitate Reverse Trade Missions (RTMs) for the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, USTDA.

These strategically planned visits present excellent opportunities for U.S. businesses to establish or enhance relationships with prospective customers from overseas.  In short, RTMs bring foreign decision-makers to the United States to observe the design, manufacture, and operation of U.S. products and services that can help them achieve their development goals.

PHM International is also contracted with the U.S. Commercial Service to bring Certified Trade Missions (CTMs) to U.S. companies. Here we work with U.S. companies opening new markets internationally. These CTMs are highly focused on one-on-one matchmaking in emerging markets, where invited U.S. firms meet in country with companies pre-qualified by the U.S. Embassy/Consulate and the U.S. Commercial Service.

We position all trade missions as ideal win-win propositions that increase product and service exports while delivering advanced technological expertise to market leaders in emerging and frontier countries.
