USDA Under Secretary for Trade Ted McKinney to Lead Upcoming Trade Mission to Southeast Asia

Fri, 13 Jul 2018 11:20:47 CDT

USDA Under Secretary for Trade Ted McKinney to Lead Upcoming Trade Mission to Southeast Asia U.S. Department of Agriculture Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney will lead a trade mission July 16-19, joined by U.S. business and state government leaders seeking to expand agricultural export opportunities in Southeast Asia.


The mission will be based in Jakarta, Indonesia, but will also include delegations of buyers from Malaysia and the Philippines who are interested in purchasing U.S. farm and food products.


“USDA trade missions are an incredible opportunity for companies looking to branch out into new markets,” McKinney said. “Participants have the chance to forge personal relationships with potential customers and learn first-hand about the ins and outs of doing business in those markets.”


Like the rest of Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines are experiencing rapidly growing economies, increasing middle class populations, and continuing urbanization – all factors contributing to favorable conditions for U.S. export expansion.
