seeing the devastation, SATDA realized it is a unique
position to contribute to the rebuilding and resupplying
of the hurricane devastated areas. Since local, state
and federal governments are pledging incredible amounts
for the resurrection of the infrastructure and economy
of the damaged areas, it behooves them to spend it wisely
and ensure that new businesses have the resources they
need to succeed and be competitive.
areas have been identified and are being targeted by
SATDA in its efforts to bring together the best of China
in rebuilding and resupplying America's reeling many.
new housing must be made available. Through one of our
members, we have developed pre-fab housing units that
are being assembled and shipped to the United States.
These housing units are well-designed and well-manufactured
units that will be offered to Americans at industry
leading price points. Much better than the mobile homes
originally proposed by the US Government but rejected
by the masses, these homes are easily manufactured,
modular, and shippable for rapid deployment to the affected
tangential supplies are needed for the homes (i.e carpet,
wiring, paneling, flooring, piping, etc.) We are working
with a number of member and soon-to-be-members in scheduling
new contracts with American buyers of these products.
new supplies are need for many, many thousands of businesses.
These businesses, some new some old and rebuilding,
all need new supplies at competitive prices. These minority-owned
SMEs have traditionally not had direct access to the
Chinese market and the products found therein. SATDA
is changing all that, and has requested and expects
to receive help from the Federal, State, and local governments
in connecting Chinese companies directly with these
American SMEs. We are contacting our member companies
as quickly as we can identify the needs required and
can match them with a members' core competency.
