We were honored to host Director, Enoh Ebong of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) at the Hampton Roads Alliance's IDEA Lab. Business Retention Expansion representatives from most of the 14 localities joined the conversation. She discussed USTDA's mission of supporting high quality infrastructure overseas through reverse trade missions. For every dollar of grant funding the federal government service provides, they see a return of $231 in imports. Director Ebong is also visiting the The Port of Virginia this afternoon. We look forward to a continued partnership.
