Foreign Trade Developments
SECOND ANNUAL SOUTHEASTERN TRADE CONFERENCE: "Focus on International Economic
Interdependence", September 6-7, 1983, at the Ramada Inn, Clemson, South
Carolina. Clemson University's College of Agricultural Sciences, College of
Liberal Arts, Strom Thurmond Institute of Government and Public Affairs, and
the U.S. Department of Commerce are sponsoring the Second Annual Southeastern
Trade Conference which will highlight international economic interdependence.
Panel discussions will focus on U.S. International trade, the international
financial market, the costs and benefits of trade restrictions, and trade
policy issues for the 1980's. The purpose of the conference is to provide a
forum for the discussion of problems affecting U.S. international trade with
the objective of formulating a foundation for solutions which will guide
future trade policy decisions. As the time to formulate a new farm program
approaches, international trade policy becomes extremely important. Leaders
from industry, government, and academia will be present to discuss these
issues. The expected audience for the conference is broad based and should
include agricultural producers, producer group representatives, textile chief
executives, managers, association representatives and those interested in the
trade policy/decision making process. We also anticipate export related
service representatives including bankers, export management companies,
freight forwarders and customs brokers. Clemson University would like to
extend to you an invitation to join us on September 6-7, 1983, to participate
in this important discussion of issues affecting future trade growth and trade
policy decisions. A registration fee of $45 will be charged which includes
admission to all sessions, social hour, banquet, information packet, and
published proceedings. The program starts at 1 p.m. on September 6 and
terminates at 12 noon on September 7. For more information call or write Mr.
Parr Rosson at Clemson University, 256 Barre Hall, Clemson, S.C. 29631, (803)
Ban on Pork Products in Bahrain. The local trade in Bahrain has been advised
that restaurants will no longer be allowed to feature pork or pork products in
their buffets and all reference to pork must be removed from their menus.
Pork can still be served if a customer specifically requests it. U.S.
exporters of imitation pork lines may wish to work closely with their local
agents to promote the use of alternative U.S. items in place of the barred
U.S. Food Product Labeling Requirements for Bahrain. U.S. exporters are
advised to be extremely careful in labeling their products for import to
Bahrain. Both the production date and expiration dates should appear, with no
indication of alteration. Exporters should print the dates fully or use a
three letter abbreviation for the month. Their has been some confusion over
production and expiration dates being presented only in numerals using the
month/day/year sequence while the common practice in this area is to use the
the day/month/year sequence.
All shipments of frozen goods which bear statements similar to "Keep Chilled"
or "Keep Refrigerated" will be rejected. Local officials fear that chilled
items nearing the end of their permitted shelf life would be frozen and new
production and expiration dates placed on the packets.
Chinese Swine Purchasing Team to Visit U.S. Officials of the China National
