Unlocking new export opportunities on Philippines trade mission

Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) Administrator Daniel Whitley led a USDA trade mission to the Philippines, July 18–21. He was joined by representatives from 29 U.S. agribusinesses and farm organizations and 10 State departments of agriculture, working together to strengthen trade relationships and further expand export opportunities. “The primary goals were to produce mutually beneficial results to help expand trade, increase collaboration on key issues impacting agriculture in both our countries, and ultimately strengthen Philippine food security,” Whitley said.  International trade missions are integral to FAS’s international marketing efforts, offering U.S. exporters a unique opportunity to build in-person relationships with potential buyers, learn first-hand about the market from industry and FAS trade experts, and ultimately generate sales for their businesses. Participants in the Philippines trade mission reported nearly $1 million in on-site sales and $7.25 million in projected 12-month sales as a result of their travel. USLGE  was represented by President and CEO Dr. Martin Sieber (front row, center of trade delegation photo at end of FAS news article).
