South Korea - November 2018

Trade Mission
November 5-8, 2018

Next stop: South Korea! 

Join the U.S. Department of Agriculture on a trade mission to Seoul November 5-8, 2018, and learn how you can grow your business in the United States’ sixth-largest agricultural export market.

South Korea is a prime market for a vast array of U.S. agricultural products, from bulk commodities to processed foods. And the favorable trade environment resulting from the United States’ free trade agreement with South Korea means that export opportunities continue to grow, particularly for consumer-ready goods. In fact, U.S. exports of consumer-oriented products to Korea reached a record $3.8 billion last year.

While in Seoul, you’ll participate in personalized business-to-business meetings arranged by local staff from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. Through in-depth briefings and site visits, you’ll also gain an understanding of the intricacies of the Korean market – from cultural expectations, to consumer tastes, to regulatory complexities – positioning yourself for future success in your business dealings there.
