Foreign Market Developments

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,
May 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.

Notice of Foreign Proposals Concerning Standards in Agriculture. As required
of all signatories to the GATT Standards Code, the following notifications of
foreign proposed standards-related rules have been provided for the
information and comment of interested agencies and firms. The Technical
Office invites inquiries from anyone who believes that any of the proposed
regulations notified under this heading could cause a trade problem. Requests
for copies or questions can be referred to Carolyn Wilson, USDA Technical
Office, Room 5530 South Agriculture Building, Washington, D.C. 20250; or
phone (202) 382-1327. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposals should
include the TBT Notification Number in their communication.

The European Community (EC) TBT Notification 83.229. The EC Commission is
proposing an amendment to EC Council Directive 75/106 of December 19, 1974
(Product Covered Wine) regarding alignment of EC member state laws on the
making-up by volume of certain prepackaged liquids. The Commission has stated
that it has become necessary to amend the regulations in order to: 1) achieve
total harmonization of the ranges of nominal quantities for all products in
the wine sector; and 2) revoke the provision of Articles 5:4 since questions
relating to the recycling of packages for beverages are being reexamined
within an appropriate framework. The objective and rationale for this
proposal are to provide consumer protection through greater market
transparency. The final date for comments is December 15, 1983.

Sweden TBT Notification 83.225. Sweden's National Food Administration is
proposing a revision to regulations on certain foodstuffs (product covered -
perishable prepackaged foodstuffs). The draft regulations would require a
date of minimum durability" and a "packaging date" for prepackaged foods
whose durability is dependent on cool storage (not exceeding plus 8 degrees
C.) These proposed requirements would replace the existing "use-by-date"
requirements for such foods. The objective and rationale for the proposal are
to protect human health and ensure fair practices in food trade. The final
date for comments is December 15, 1983.

The tradeletter, CONTACTS for U.S. Farm Products, is an export promotion
service offered FREE by the Foreign Agricultural Service to help American
companies introduce agricultural products to foreign markets. The CONTACTS
provides names and addresses of U.S. suppliers and a brief description of the
agricultural products they offer to potential foreign buyers.

CONTACTS is designed to help publicize the availability of U.S. agricultural
products and services in foreign markets. The CONTACTS tradeletter will allow
a U.S. supplier to advertise their product or service in a free 100 word or
less trade announcement. The newsletter is transmitted overseas monthly to
our Agricultural Officers where they distribute it to agricultural importers.
In addition, the newsletter is translated into Japanese, Spanish, French,
Italian, and Greek.

representative with your State Department of Agriculture, or call (202)
447-7103 for further information on how to participate in the CONTACTS
program. While preference for participation in this program is given to
