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. 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

CONTACTS FOR U.S. FARM PRODUCTS
A FREE EXPORT PROMOTION TOOL
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

our Agricultural Officers where they distribute it to agricultural importers.
In addition, the newsletter is translated into Japanese, Spanish, French,
Italian, and Greek.
