Trade mission to Vietnam
Acting Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services Michael Scuse will lead USDA’s first agricultural trade mission to Vietnam in the cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City this week. Vietnam is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and an important market for U.S. agricultural products. Two-way agricultural, fish and forestry trade with Vietnam reached nearly $3.4 billion in 2010.
Fifteen U.S. companies representing a wide range of food and agricultural products will take part in the mission, which aims to promote U.S. agricultural exports to Vietnam. Throughout the mission, these companies will meet with nearly 150 Vietnamese producers, importers, buyers, distributors and investors to develop trade relationships.
