The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has entered into bilateral agreements with China, India and Brazil for technical cooperation in the aviation sector, supporting airport expansion, airspace management and safety. Various aviation workshops are hosted in China to provide managerial, technical, safety, efficiency, capacity and operational training. In India, a grant to the Airports Authority of India was awarded to support predictable and efficient operations. In preparation to the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, Brazil is receiving assistance to support airport development and network modernization plans in addition to multiple training activities. USTDA hosted the U.S./Latin America Aviation Summit in December 2012 to promote cooperation between the U.S. and eight States in Latin America. USTDA is also funding technical assistance in Azerbaijan to promote conformance with ICAO guidelines.
