Foreign Trade Developments

Haitian restrictions on agricultural imports. Haiti has issued a decree
prohibiting the import of certain products that can be produced
domestically. The list includes coffee, candies, macaroni, noodles and
spaghetti, cookies, bread and biscuits, canned fruit juices and vinegar.
It is assumed the tourist industry will not be affected by the decree.
Quotas and an import licensing system are planned but have not yet been

New food packaging regulations for Dubai imports of poultry and canned
goods. Dubai is the major entry point for foodstuffs imported in the UAE,
and is also a re-export center for the lower gulf. Poultry must be packed
in clear plastic, showing both packing date and expiry date. All shipments
must be accompanied by a health certificate from country of origin and a
certificate of compliance with Islamic dietary laws. The Islamic
certificate, called a Mutaawa, should be issued by the Islamic center
closest to the origin of the shipment. There is no standard form for this
certificate. Handling instructions must accompany shipment, should be
addressed to Dubai municipality, and should state maximum/minimum storage
temperatures and any special handling requirements. Canned goods must have
expiry date punched into metal lid. Dates printed on labels or stickers
are unacceptable. Bottles may have dates printed on caps but label dating
is banned. Goods which fail to comply with requirements will be seized and
destroyed. While there is no indication of when regs will become
effective, officials stressed that this is gulf-wide policy not restricted
to the UAE.

Japanese government procurement. As a signatory of a government
Procurement Code agreement of January 1, 1981, Japan has opened up foreign
bidding on all contracts above an amount of about $200,000. The tenders
are being translated by the Department of Commerce and any pertaining to
food and agriculture will be reported to FAS for transmission in our
TORS/Export Briefs programs.

Giant Export Food Show Planned. What is planned as the nation's
biggest-ever export food show will be held in Atlanta, GA May 17-19, 1983.
Sponsored by the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture
(NASDA) in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the
three-day event is expected to attract about 1,000 foreign buyers who will
view products by as many as 700 firms from all fifty states. The show will
be an ongoing event held every two years in different regions of the
country. The purpose of the show--termed the NASDA National Food and
Agriculture Exposition--is to spur farm exports by enabling foreign buyers
to sample the huge variety of high-quality American food and fiber
products. U.S. agricultural exports totalled a record $40 billion in 1980
and all indicators point to even higher export earnings in 1981 and
beyond. Continued growth, however, depends on the dedicated efforts of
both the private sector and government to maintain existing markets and
develop new ones. The Exposition will contribute to this task by
encouraging the participation of U.S. producers and processors who have had
little or no past experience with export sales.


Notice of Foreign Proposals Concerning Standards in Agriculture. As
required of all signatories to the GATT Standards Code, 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.
Questions can be referred to Thomas O'Connell, USDA Technical Office, 5528
South Agriculture Building, Washington, D.C. 20250; or phone at (202)
Finland. The Finnish Ministry of Trade and Industry has proposed a
"mushroom and mushroom products decree" which gives regulations for
determining the quality of mushrooms and for their packaging and labelling.

Taiwan Sales Team. Following the U.S.D.A. sponsored food exhibit in Hong
Kong September 8-9, 1981, exhibitors will be invited to take part in a
sales team visit to Taiwan September 14 & 15. In Taiwan, a billion plus
dollar market for U.S. agricultural products, there will be a one-day
product display at the U.S. Trade Center on September 14 followed by
pre-arranged appointments with potential importers on the second day and
subsequent days if desired. For additional information, contact Robert
Francis, Project Leader Taiwan Sales Team, Export Trade Services
Division, Foreign Agricultural Service, Washington, D.C. 20250. Phone:
(202) 447-7777.
