U.S. Food Exhibit -- Singapore Food and Hotel '84 and Hong Kong. U.S.
agricultural exporters will have a unique opportunity to explore the potential
for their food products in two key Asian markets next spring.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture/Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), in
cooperation with several U.S. trade associations and industry groups, is
sponsoring American food exhibits in Singapore, April 24-27, and in Hong Kong,
Mlay 1-2, 1984.

Both countries show excellent market potential. Exporter will have an
opportunity to demonstrate and promote their food products to retailers,
wholesalers, the hotel-restaurant and institutional trade and other food

Singapore has become one of the fastest growing markets in the world for food
products--thanks to its role as an entrepot center.

Recent years have seen a rapid rise in Singapore's economy which was
accompanied by an increase in per capital income. These factors, coupled with
demand for quality foods by hotel restaurants, tourists, the shipping and
airline catering industry, and an increasing number of foreign residents, make
Singapore a growth market for quality U.S. processed foods. U.S. exports of
food to Singapore grew from $90 million in 1979 to an estimated $300 million
in 1982. About 75 percent of these products were re-exported to surrounding
countries. Singnificant imports include fruits and vegetables, grains,
cereals and cereal preparation, coffee, tea, sugar, spices, frozen poultry,
dairy products, meat, meat preparation, processed foods and U.S. breeder swine.

Hong Kong is a free port and the government seldom interferes in the export
trade. Most goods can enter Hong Kong duty-free and tariff-free.

Hong Kong is a large export market for U.S. oranges and grapes. Other U.S.
food items which find a market there include poultry, shell eggs, beef,
catfish, apples, melons, and lettuce. There is also potential for grocery
items as the number of retail food outlets continues to increase. Any food
product normally offered for sale to the U.S. food service industry can be
displayed and demonstrated at the two food shows.

Exhibitor's fees are $500 for the Singapore "Food and Hotel Asia '84" show and
$200 for the Hong Kong food show. Participants must have a representative at
the show to discuss their products with those attending the exhibit. While
U.S.-based representatives are preferred, agents and/or distributors are also
welcome. FAS will accept participation agreements on a first-come,
first-served basis until Februaty 29, 1984. Participation fees must accompany
the application for exhibit space.
