The Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (Urdu: تجارتی ترقی اختیار پاکستان, abbreviated as TDAP), is a department within the Ministry of Commerce and Textile Industry of the Government of Pakistan. The department was established on 8 November 2006 under a Presidential Ordinance, as a successor organization to the Export Promotion Bureau, which was established in 1963. The TDAP is mandated to have a holistic view of global trade development, rather than only the export promotion - together with its 14 regional offices, the department performs facilitation and regulatory functions as well as providing supply side and marketing assistance to exporters.
