Trade Markets affected: Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines
Measure: The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) is announcing recruitment for the Clean EDGE Asia Business Development Mission to Indonesia and Vietnam, with an optional stop to the Philippines.
Why this matters: The Mission was previously announced as the Asia EDGE Business Development Mission and was initially scheduled for March 16-24, 2020. The Mission was postponed multiple times due to COVID-19. The Mission is now being organized under the Biden-Harris Administration’s new Indo-Pacific clean energy initiative, Clean EDGE Asia, and is focused on promoting U.S. products and services exports that strengthen energy security, enhance energy access, promote open and efficient energy markets, and advance clean energy and climate goals in Southeast Asia.
More information: Details on the Mission (including timetable, prospects and fees) and how to apply are available in the Federal Register.
Potential action: If you or your clients are interested in growing sales of energy – in particular clean and sustainable energy – products, then participating in a trade mission is a great way to efficiently and effectively meet new prospects. Please reach out to the DEC so that we can connect you to Enterprise Florida to find out whether you would be eligible for a trade mission grant to offset some of the costs of participating in this trade mission.
