U. S. Food Exhibits -- in Singapore 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 (fay 1-2, 1984).

Both countries show excellent market potential. Exporters 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. Significant 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
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 February
29, 1984. Participation fees must accompany the application for exhibit
space. For further information contact: Levi L. Turner, Agricultural
Marketing Specialist, Export Programs Division, Room 4944-S Building, Foreign
Agricultural Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.
