USDA TO DISCONTINUE THE TRADE LEADS AND BUYER ALERTS
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service is discontinuing the Trade Leads and Buyer Alerts services effective January 1, 2006.
U.S. suppliers who want to inform foreign buyers about their products will be directed to the State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs) for assistance. The SRTGs, which are FAS program participants, offer customized export assistance on a wide variety of export-related topics from "connection to collection." The SRTGs list can be obtained by accessing the FAS Web page at http://www.fas.usda.gov/agx/counseling_advocacy/srtg_directory.asp
