    In support of the Department of Defense’s broader strategy to improve efficiencies within its global supply chains, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has contracted Theodor Wille Intertrade (TWI) to locally source common consumables used by U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. Identifying and sourcing from vendors throughout the Central Asia region, TWI supplies over 100 of the top products used by GSA customers in Afghanistan. Leveraging TWI’s long history of managing supply chains, GSA seeks to improve the purchasing and delivery of their products while at the same time bolster the capacity of local vendors through their acquisitions. Please join us to learn more about the work of GSA and TWI in Central Asia and how building regional procurement models such as GSA's in Afghanistan can have a broader development impact for local communities.
