Join trade mission to Taiwan

USDA's first-ever trade mission to Taipei is April 22-25; it's a leading U.S. export market.

USDA is planning its first-ever trade mission to Taipei, April 22-25, 2019, and businesspeople are invited to come along.

While in Taipei, businesspeople will participate in personalized business-to-business meetings arranged by local staff from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. FAS and industry trade experts will guide visitors through in-depth briefings and site visits to gain an understanding of the intricacies of the Taiwan market – from cultural expectations, to consumer tastes, to regulatory complexities – to better position your company for future success in this market. Taiwan is the eighth-largest U.S. agricultural export market.

Known as the heart of Asia for its central location and fusion of cuisines, Taiwan is a bustling food hub dependent on agricultural imports. The United States is Taiwan’s top supplier of agricultural products, with 31% of market share. Taiwanese buyers regard the United States as a reliable supplier of high-quality farm and food products ranging from bulk commodities to consumer-oriented goods. Business opportunities for trade mission participants are promising as U.S. agricultural exports to Taiwan reached a record $3.8 billion in fiscal year 2018.
