"Project LAC" July 2007 Trade Mission to Latin America

NewMarket Technology was selected to implement "Project LAC" from a competitive group of applicants based on the company's own successful growth in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region. NewMarket initially entered the LAC region in 2004 to bring emerging technologies to emerging markets.

The purpose of "Project LAC" is to enhance small U.S. technology company involvement in the LAC region. The project is funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID), supported by the dot-ORG program and implemented by the Academy for Educational Development (AED) and NewMarket Technology.

Any small U.S.-based technology company may apply, and up to ten companies will be selected to participate in the project. The chosen companies will receive information and guidance on how to expand their businesses into LAC markets, particularly underserved areas, as well as an opportunity to develop initial business opportunities through a Trade Mission to Latin America in July 2007.

A copy of the RFA and further project information for companies interested in participating in the project are available on the project website at www.projectLAC.com.
