The United Arab Emirates (UAE) boasts a growing consumer market and has been one of the top export destinations in the Middle East region for U.S. consumer-oriented food products. U.S. agricultural exporters can join the U.S. Department of Agriculture as they lead a trade mission to Dubai, February 16-21, 2022.

The Mission will focus on providing more export opportunities while continuing to grow U.S. agricultural sales to the UAE, where U.S. agriculture and food exports averaged $1.2 billion annually for the last 5 years.

While trade mission delegates are in Dubai, they will conduct business-to-business meetings with potential customers, receive in-depth market briefings from FAS and industry trade experts, and participate in site visits, including the annual Gulfood Show, and the Dubai Expo 2020.
