Dynamic Defense Materials, LLC was recently chosen to participate in the first international trade mission to Kabul, Afghanistan. Led by Francisco Sánchez, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, the mission included representatives from 12 U.S. businesses in the construction, mining, agribusiness and information technology sectors.
All businesses in attendance shared the common goal of seeking to play a role in the rebuilding of Afghanistan. The mission helped U.S. companies explore long term business opportunities in Afghanistan and enhance U.S.-Afghan commercial relations by providing participants with first-hand market information and access to government decision makers.
DDM was one of the few companies involved in the mission that is currently doing business in Afghanistan. Upon walking off the plane at Kabul Airport, Joe Dimond, General Manager for DDM, was greeted by McCurdy's Armor® kits being used for protection at the airport.
During the mission, DDM and International Defense Technologies were able to finalize agreements with new partners in Kabul. As a result, the companies now have permanent representation in Afghanistan supporting their efforts to help make it a safer place not only for the Afghan people, but also for foreign investors who are committed to making Afghanistan a prosperous and peaceful nation.
