USDA Accepting Applications for East Africa Trade Mission
USAgNet - 08/05/2022
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is accepting applications from U.S. exporters for a trade mission to Nairobi, Kenya, and Zanzibar, Tanzania, Oct. 31-Nov. 4. The mission will offer U.S. agribusinesses the opportunity to unlock new opportunities in East and
Central Africa, where strong economic growth is driving demand for imported food and farm products.
“The Foreign Agricultural Service team looks forward to introducing U.S. exporters to the many business opportunities that exist in East and Central Africa,” said FAS Administrator Daniel Whitley. “Our staff and other experts from the region will provide in-depth market briefings, and we’ll also arrange targeted business meetings, site visits and other networking opportunities with potential importers, processors, distributors and local officials.
Kenya is the economic, financial and transport hub for East and Central Africa. While in Nairobi, trade mission delegates will meet potential customers from across Sub-Saharan Africa. They’ll then head to Zanzibar, in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, which is a historic trading hub with a thriving tourism sector.
