The Secretary of Commerce will lead an Infrastructure Business Development Mission to Brazil, Colombia and Panama from May 12-18, 2013. In all three countries, the governments and private sector are investing significant money in infrastructure projects. As a result, the mission will focus on export-ready U.S. firms in a broad range of leading U.S. infrastructure industrial sectors with an emphasis on project management and engineering services (construction, architecture and design), transportation (roads/highways, rail, airports, ports and intelligent transportation systems), energy (distribution, transmission and smart grid) and safety and security. 20-25 U.S. companies will be selected to participate.
Please join the U.S. Department of Commerce for a Webinar Discussing the Mission
The webinar will provide an overview of the objectives of the mission and a brief discussion of economic and infrastructure opportunities in each of the countries to be visited during the mission, and allow for Q&A.
