The firm is noted for its pragmatic, seasoned approach to providing technical assistance. AMEX has initiated and managed several profitable business operations in the U.S. and several foreign countries. Most of these enterprises have been joint ventures, merging outside managerial and technological know-how with local institutions and resources.     CONSULTING SERVICES Administrative, Technical and Management Support AMEX has provided outstanding professional, administrative, technical and management support to governments, institutions, and private corporations for more than twenty years.

In addition, the firm has a long history of designing and implementing country­wide strategies for private-sector development and trade expansion. AMEX’s business development consulting services have also involved the design and implementation of comprehensive programs to encourage local participation in small business creation and trade.     PROCUREMENT AND SHIPPING SERVICES   For over two decades, AMEX has been involved in procurement and shipping of agricultural commodities and products, as well as industrial and office equipment.

AMEX has purchased more than 6 million metric tons of agricultural products under the U.S. government’s Public Law 480 Title I and Title II, Section 416(b) program, the Food for Progress program, and the Export Enhancement Program. AMEX’s rapid response in bringing food aid has helped to ease the transition to democracy and free-market economies in the New Independent States (former Soviet Republics) and to alleviate food shortages caused by droughts in Africa.
