Although recent headlines regarding U.S. agricultural trade have centered on U.S. exports to Canada and Mexico, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is continuing to work on fostering the expansion of American exports in other markets around the world. USDA will host its next Agricultural Trade Mission in Cairo, Egypt, April 2 to 6, and IDFA members are invited to participate.
The trade mission will connect U.S. agricultural companies with potential customers and offer educational opportunities on market conditions and import procedures for Egypt, Algeria, Jordan and Lebanon. Together, these four countries imported nearly $1.5 billion in food and agricultural products in 2016, with Egypt purchasing the largest share of dairy at $29 million.
Member companies that are interested in expanding their exports to any of the four countries are encouraged to apply to join the trade mission.
