Attendees will hear guest speakers’ insights into the Obama administration’s trade agenda, the impact of the budget process on export market development programs and the implications for our industry and international trade. In addition, USMEF’s international directors will discuss the latest market developments and trade issues, and members will have the opportunity for one-on-one questions on specific issues. The Friday closing session will include a presentation on the value of branding internationally.
For those meeting attendees who wish to take advantage of the proximity to our nation’s capital to visit with their congressional representatives, USMEF can provide talking points on the importance of agricultural exports and maintaining funding for USDA’s MAP and FMD programs.
