2017 SE Asia Consumer Oriented Inbound Mission to California, Washington and Hawaii ~ August 14-19, 2017

SE Asia is home to over 600 million people, with a combined 2016 GDP of US$2.5 trillion growing at about 5% per year. Generally the region has experienced strong urban growth, rising incomes, increased participation in the workforce and lack of sufficient arable land to grow all of their own food. Consumers tend to have a favorable opinion of U.S. foods and consider them of high quality. In 2016, western U.S. exports of food and agricultural products to the seven-country ASEAN region was US$4.6billion, with growth far outpacing the general trend for US agriculture exports. Take advantage of this Inbound Trade Mission and showcase your products to buyers in this sought-after market.
