WASTEC and USAID Announce Partnership

Washington, D.C. - The Waste Equipment Technology Association (WASTEC) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

The memorandum completes an agreement, which will make USAID's Global Technology Network (GTN) available to WASTEC members free of charge. The GTN assists U.S. small- and medium-sized companies seeking access to emerging overseas markets by attempting to match the needs of companies in developing countries with the appropriate technology solutions of U.S. companies.

The GTN also aids in communication and coordination between prospective buyers and sellers. GTN's priority sectors include agriculture, environment, energy, health and information technology.
