USDA Plans March Trade Mission to China
The trade mission will promote joint ventures and support bilateral trade with China and improve U.S. agribusiness ties with China through establishing direct trade relations between U.S. producers and Chinese buyers. The product focus of this mission to China includes: retail sector, HRI (both overall), swine (genetics and feed), dairy feed, dairy products, and frozen meat products.
Chinese business representatives will meet with selected U.S. agribusiness participants in both locations. Meetings with government and industry officials from both China and the U.S.; presentations by public/private sector experts; one-on-one business meetings and site visits will be scheduled during the Mission. Additional meetings may be arranged by USDA upon request.
USDA will cover all on-ground expenses (transportation, interpretation, conference venue, reception costs, etc.) during the Mission. Participants are responsible for their travel to and from China, the Chengdu-to-Shanghai flight, and their in-country lodging costs (at the government rate).
