Who We Serve

Both the U.S. and foreign countries benefit from CLDP’s technical assistance programs and consultative services, which help to create legal reforms that encourage and promote international trade. U.S. businesses benefit from growing overseas markets that have transparent legal systems and fair regulations. In this way, CLDP’s work to help countries increase compliance with international and bilateral trade obligations levels the playing field for U.S. businesses to compete. Likewise, CLDP has worked with more than 50 foreign governments over the years, organizing seminars, workshops and consultative services that foster an atmosphere of cooperation and build stronger trade and economic partnerships among our countries. When striving to improve the climate for business around the world, CLDP coordinates with many other U.S. federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of State and the U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in the funding and implementation of programs. Similarly, CLDP’s unique government-to-government assistance is complemented by the specific technical expertise of other federal departments and the federal court system, among others.
