  Africa Trade Development Center (ATDC):  The AfrICA Trade Development Center (ATDC) promotes, and facilitates trade between Africa, the United States and the Americas. Located in the Miami Free Zone, ATDC is a 850,000 square foot facility that serves as a fully functioning trade hub to the Americas.  ATDC provides distribution support for export ready micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) from AGOA eligible countries; and serves as a trade resource center for businesses interested in expanding trade between the United States and emerging markets in Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.

Mission

ATDC is dedicated to creating demand for micro, small, and medium enterprises’ (MSMEs’) products in the US and the Americas and expanding US – Africa trade.  ATDC accomplishes this task by providing: a presence for MSME’s products in the ATDC, and  on-line in our virtual shopping mall (AfrICATDC.com); marketing and promoting MSMEs’ products in the Americas;  and offering MSMEs training and technical assistance, logistical support and access to distribution networks in markets in the:

  ●   United States

  ●   Latin America

  ●   The Caribbean

  ●   Canada

Our Vision

  •         Increase US-Africa trade and investment by leveraging Florida’s access to markets in the Americas
  •          Reduce supply chain constraints for export ready MSMEs by using the  Miami Free Trade Zone as a distribution hub
  •          Maximize competitiveness  for MSMEs by reducing the cost associated with global trade (i.e., duty elimination, duty deferral and                         reduced insurance costs)
  •          Minimize the barriers associated with importing  MSME’s products under AGOA

      African Union (AU): Launched in 2002, as a result of the dissolution of its predecessor, the Organization of African Unity, the African Union (AU) is one of the world's most important intergovernmental organizations and is charged with spearheading Africa’s development and integration into the global economy. AU is comprised of 53 of the 54 countries in Africa (Morocco is not a member).  These African countries work with each other despite differences in history, race, language, and religion in an effort to improve the political, economic, and social circumstances for the approximately one billion people that live on the African continent.
