Water Infrastructure Trade Mission

to Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines and ADB

July 14 – 22, 2016

Singapore, Vietnam, and Philippines

The U.S. Department of Commerce International Trade Administration is organizing this trade mission and is looking for U.S. company participants wishing to explore and expand in these markets. In addition, a briefing on Asian Development Bank business opportunities in the Asia Pacific region will be included in the Philippine program. ADB lends over $22 billion annually to its member countries in the Asia Pacific region. Over $2 billion went to the water sector in 2014. This lending translates to sizable procurement opportunities for U.S. consultants, and goods and equipment suppliers. Some $4 billion in water projects for ASEAN is in ADB’s current portfolio.
