Croatian Delegation to Present on Immediate Cable Project Opportunities

Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from U.S. Trade and Development Agency

    WASHINGTON, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Trade and Development Agency
 (TDA) will be hosting a delegation of six Croatian Cable Television Company
 officials to meet with American cable television equipment and service
 providers at a business briefing to be held on May 10, 2001 in Orlando,
 Florida.  The business briefing is scheduled in conjunction with the Society
 of Cable Telecommunications Engineers' (SCTE) Cable-Tec Expo 2001.  This
 briefing will be part of a weeklong orientation visit for the Croatian
 officials, with further stops in Connecticut and Atlanta, Georgia to meet with
 U.S. companies.
     In response to its rapidly developing cable market, the Croatian
 Government has recently developed a legal framework requiring local cable
 operators to make necessary investments for integrating their regional systems
 into a national network.  The delegation is looking to U.S. companies to
 provide technical expertise in various areas, including the determination of
 features offered to customers, the development of network parameters, and the
 components necessary to complete the build-out of the national network.  A
 number of local and international venture capital companies have already
 committed to funding most of the network's build-out.
     U.S. businesses interested in attending the business briefing or
 sponsoring events for the delegation should contact Bernard Markowicz at
 703-255-1101 or markowicz@decisionanalysis.net.
 
     The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is an independent federal agency
 that assists in the creation of jobs for Americans by helping U.S. companies
 pursue overseas business opportunities.  TDA provides American firms with
 market entry, exposure and information through the funding of feasibility
 studies, technical assistance, reverse trade missions and conferences.  These
 efforts help American businesses establish a position in newly emerging
 economies.
