BCI Market Development Team Participates in Seminars Dedicated to US Agriculture Exports.
During the week of January 25, BCI’s Market Development team members participated in virtual meetings hosted by the US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and the US Agriculture Economic Development Council (USAEDC) called “The Role of the Agricultural Trade Office.” ATOs are the USDA offices overseas that promote US agriculture exports.
The sessions featured panelists from several Agricultural Trade Offices and agriculture groups detailing their experiences working together to promote US agricultural products overseas. The focus was on leveraging the resources and knowledge of ATOs to serve the US agricultural community in their markets via trade shows and events, market intelligence, speaking opportunities, and more. Communication was stressed as important to keeping each other looped in on collaborative opportunities.
