2023 China and Taiwan Seafood Inbound Mission to Seafood Expo North America

March 10-14, Boston MA; March 15-17, Seattle WA

China remains the top 3rd export market for U.S. seafood products, totaling $865.58 million in seafood products imported from the United States to China in 2021. Digital strategies help promote U.S. seafood and agricultural products online to Chinese consumers. Since becoming the world’s largest e-commerce market in 2013, online shopping in China has continued to thrive in recent years.

China and Taiwan are two of the largest markets for U.S. seafood agricultural exports. China's demand for imported seafood products has continued to increase since 2019, especially post COVID.

During this inbound trade mission, buyers will spend three full days in Boston attending the Seafood Expo North America show to meet with WUSATA seafood producers and exporters. Then buyers will fly to Seattle, WA to visit seafood producers' facilities and processing plants. WUSATA participants will have tailored one-one-one business meetings with visiting buyers to showcase their products.

This is the first in- person seafood specific mission since COVID and the first time WUSATA has participated in this seafood expo! Experienced seafood exporters and new-to-market seafood companies- please take advantage of this opportunity!
