MARKET DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES


Ban on Fresh Fruits, Vegetables and Meats

Effective May 8, Saudia Arabia Customs placed a ban on imports of all fresh
fruits, vegetables and meats from European countries for fear of nuclear
contamination. Export opportunities for fresh fruits and vegetables by air
shipments will increase as a result of this ban. Other important factors
adding to the export opportunity are the strength of the Dutch guilder
(Holland is an important supplier to the Saudi market) and a seasonal decrease
in local production.


AGEXPORT 86


The National Commission on Agricultural Trade and Export Policy (NCATEP) is
hosting AgExport 86, a public affairs program of high-level discussions,
problem solving, and open dialogue concerning American Agricultural trade.
The event is scheduled for June 16-20, and will involve all sectors of the
agriculture industry.

The NCATEP will use the AgExport 86 discussion panels as the means to present
its final policy recommendations to the President and the Congress. These
discussion panels, scheduled for Tuesday (6/17) and Wednesday (6/18) compose
the most substantive part of the program and should be extremely valuable to
those who attend.

Agriculturalists from across the country are expected to participate, and are
urged to become involved in what should prove to be the Agricultural Trade
event of the year. Additional information on AgExport 86 can be obtained at
the following address:

GUIDELINES FOR RESPONDING TO INQUIRIES


Based on comments from firms to Foreign Agricultural Service representatives
aboard, there are two main reasons companies are unsuccessful in their
attempts to develop trade relationships from opportunities presented--delays
in responding to trade inquiries and ineffective correspondence. The
following guidelines may prove helpful when responding to trade inquiries.

ALWAYS REPLY QUICKLY

USE TELEX. Telex is the communication mode expected by most foreign buyers.
If more details are required, a brief telephone call is also an effective way
to indicate your interest, delay gives the edge to your competition. unless
otherwise specified by foreign inquiry, correspondence in English is
acceptable.

ALWAYS RESPOND COMPLETELY

ON YOUR FIRM. Furnish bank and trade references, pertinent company history,
and relevant exporting experience. It is also useful to mail a copy of your
annual sales report. Establish your firm as a reliable source of supply.

ON YOUR PRODUCT. Supply complete product information. Use the metric system
of measurement. American standard weights, measures and dimensions have
little meaning in most overseas countries. When responding by mail,
descriptive and illustrative brochures should be include, but not relied on,
to do the whole selling job.

ON YOUR PRICE. Include full price information when possible, and a devivery
date. Quote the price requested or a CIF price (cost, insurance, and freight)
to a port in the inquirer's country. A freight forwarder will be able to help
you determine insurance and freight prices for the products involved. Specific
terms of payment should be clearly stated. Information provided should,
whenever possible, be sufficient for the customer to place an order without
the delay of further correspondence.

ALWAYS REPLY EFFECTIVELY

BE SPECIFIC. Ask specific questions to pinpoint buyer's needs. If the
inquiry does not clearly specify products or services desired, let the buyer
know what you have available. Do not neglect imprecise inquiries.

BE DISCRETE. Seek credit data from sources other than the overseas firm.
Personal requests for credit information are considered discourteous in many
countries. Such information is easily obtained from reliable and objective
sources such as your bank's international department.









BE ORIGINAL. When relpying by mail, do not use form letters. Form letters
are frequently discarded by overseas buyers. Keep correspondence friendly and
interesting. Avoid using slang. Create an impression of personal and
exclusive interest.

BE ACCURATE. Check the correct address of the foreign firm, whatever mode of
reply. When writing, do not discard the envelope until you are sure the
complete address (including the country) is on the firm's letterhead. The
return address should provide your company's full name and address, including
"U.S.A". After the zip code. Include your cable address and telephone number.

BE SMART. Do not disregraud inquiries with less-than-perfect English. Quite
possibly, it is a legitimate sales lead but the writer knows English only as a
second language. Also, if the printing quality of the stationery does not
meet standards you ordinarily expect, keep in mind that printing standards in
your correspondent's country might be quite different. Despite first
impression, the inquiry may be from a reputable, well-established firm.

FOLLOW-UP. If a reply is not received within a reasonable time, follow-up
with a second telex. You may have missed the original export opportunity, But
may still be able to begin a business relationship.
