Trade Mission Scheduled for May

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is exploring new business connections in southern China. Through a trade mission scheduled for May 21-25, 2018, Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney will lead a mission into Guangzhou and Shenzhen, China.

Why South China?

As a major hub and growing market for U.S. agricultural exports (average of $8 billion annually), South China is primed with consumers in the region who have an affinity for U.S. products and demand for many consumer-oriented goods – from bakery ingredients to fresh fruits to alcoholic beverages. In-country staff from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service will help arrange meetings between U.S. delegates (from Idaho, Nebraska and Virginia departments of agriculture, as well as 25 U.S. business representatives) and Chinese companies in Guangzhou and Shenzhen. International trade missions are intended to forge relationships with potential customers, gather market intelligence, and generate sales. Future trade missions scheduled for 2018 will take place in Japan, Southeast Asia, Southern Africa, and South Korea. K·Coe Isom’s Federal Affairs team is monitoring developments around trade opportunities for farmers. Contact us for more information regarding trade benefits for your business, or visit Farmers for Free Trade to learn more about supporting and expanding export opportunities for American farms and ranches.
