South China - May 2018

On the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s next agribusiness trade mission, set for May 21-25, 2018, U.S. companies can explore opportunities for exporting their food and farm products to the booming South China market. The mission will take place in Guangzhou and Shenzhen, two of China’s largest cities, where participants will connect with potential customers and take part in-depth briefings and site visits in order to learn first-hand about the ins and outs of doing business in the region.

Why South China?

South China is a major import hub and a growing market for U.S. agricultural exports, which already average $8 billion annually. The region is dominated by Guangdong, China’s largest province in terms of population, GDP, and retail and e-commerce sales. Consumers in the region have an affinity for U.S. products, and demand for many consumer-oriented goods – from bakery ingredients to fresh fruits to alcoholic beverages – is on the rise.
