China Importer/Distributor Inbound Mission to: BOISE, ID August 5 - 6, HONOLULU, HI August 7 - 8

This will be an excellent opportunity for companies to participate in the growing China market. In 2012, WUSATA states exported over $9.5 billion (a 47% increase over 2011) in agricultural products to China, ranking it as the top agricultural export market for the WUSATA states. As a result of the continuing economic growth in China, growing urbanization, increased disposable income, and a strong interest in food safety, more middle class consumers are trading up to buy imported products. This activity will focus on promoting high quality U.S. products to the buyers from China.
