Overseas Export Promotions

USDA secretary Tom Vilsack announced 70 U.S. trade organizations received $234 million in Fiscal Year 2009 to promote American food overseas.
“Agricultural trade is absolutely crucial to the U.S. economy and by providing this funding to U.S. organizations during these difficult economic times will help open new global markets for American food products,” Vilsack said.
The money came from the Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development Cooperator Program (FMD). Both organizations work on promoting the marketing and partnership of the U.S. with overseas markets and companies.
