Trade Mission Offers New Opportunities in South Korea

Representatives from 49 U.S. companies and organizations will join the Department of Agriculture agribusiness trade mission to Seoul, South Korea. Led by Undersecretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Alexis M. Taylor, the mission takes place March 25-28.

Undersecretary Taylor says, “I’m confident that this trade mission will produce great results for America’s farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses, and exporters, as we work to strengthen trade with our existing partners and expand and diversify the products we offer.”

South Korea ranks as the United States’ fifth-largest single-export market. Also, as one of the fastest-growing economies in the developed world during the past several decades, and with relatively small amounts of arable land, South Korea relies heavily on imported agricultural goods, especially meat and bulk commodities, to satisfy food and feed demand. While on the trade mission, participants will engage in targeted business-to-business meetings and site visits to build new trade linkages, strengthen existing partnerships, observe U.S. products in the marketplace, and discover the latest Korean consumer food trends.
