USDA Invites American Agribusiness to Join Fall Trade Mission to South Africa
July 8, 2018
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is inviting businesses interested in growing their exports to Africa to join the USDA's upcoming trade mission to South Africa from October 29-November 2, 2018.
While the mission will be based in Johannesburg and Cape Town, participants will have the opportunity to engage with potential customers from a total of 11 countries in the region: South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Collectively, the United States exported $62 million in agricultural products to those countries in 2017, a 25-percent increase from the previous year.
In addition to personalized business-to-business meetings arranged by local staff from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service, participants will also take part in depth-briefings and site visits to learn first-hand about what it takes to successfully export U.S. farm and food products to Southern Africa.
Application deadline is July 23, 2018.
