MARKET DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES
USDA TAKES FURTHIER STEP TO SPEED DELIVERY OF EXPORT LEADS
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service iss expanding its
telecommnication links with its agricultural trade offices overseas in its drive to
increase the volume and timeliness of trade leads available to U.S. agricultural
exporters, according to Richard A. Smith, agency administrator.
"We are shooting for a system that permits same-day response by companies to requests
made by foreign imorters to U.S. agricultural counselors and attaches abroad," Smith
"The Foreign Agricultural Service already has taken steps to speed up the domestic
delivery process of trade leads through the use of computer networks in the United
States, he said.
'"We also have underway an 18nnmonth promrotional project to encourage U.S. exporters to
assume a more aggressive exporting role by using this communication network to make
connections with prospective importers," Smith said. "Marketing officials in state
departments of agriculture will be closely involved in this project since it will be
their job to help active and potential exporters in their states make full use of
this reverse trade lead service."
Smith said the two-way communications process is expected to be of particular value
to smaller U.S. exrporters, especially those involved in selling high-value and
All of these activities are part of the Foreign Agricultural Service's agricultural
information and marketing service group -- which is the new name for the agency trade
lead and high-value and value-added export promotion services.
