USDA embarks on Trade Mission to East Africa
USDA’s Trade Mission to East Africa is currently underway.
Deputy Secretary Jewel Bronaugh will lead a group of nearly three dozen ag businesses. They will visit strategic port cities in Kenya and Tanzania, which accounted for $70 million in U.S. ag products last year.

“It’s my great pleasure to lead this trade mission. Kenya and Tanzania are important and growing markets, and I look forward to strengthening our ties with both nations while expanding opportunities for U.S. agricultural and food product exports,” said Bronaugh.
Officials from several Midwest state ag departments will attend the week-long trip.
