Angola welcomes first USDA Agribusiness trade mission

By Farms.com

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is taking a historic step by launching its first-ever agribusiness trade mission to Angola, under the leadership of Deputy Secretary Xochitl Torres Small.

This strategic move involves key figures from the Kansas and Wisconsin departments of agriculture and 16 distinguished U.S. companies and organizations. Their mission: to pave the way for American agri-businesses in Angola and beyond. 

Angola, seen as a gateway to Sub-Saharan Africa, presents untapped opportunities for U.S. exporters of high-quality agricultural goods. The trade mission is an essential platform for U.S. delegates to engage directly with potential buyers from Angola and its neighboring countries, fostering invaluable business connections. With comprehensive market briefings and insights, participants are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of the African market. 

Representing a broad spectrum of the U.S. agricultural sector, including products like poultry, soybeans, and dairy, the delegation's diverse portfolio highlights the breadth of American agricultural innovation and quality. This initiative not only aims to boost U.S. exports but also to contribute to the global food system's resilience and sustainability, aligning with the Biden-Harris Administration's vision for a fair, equitable, and environmentally conscious agricultural sector. 

By strengthening international ties and opening new channels for trade, the USDA's trade mission to Angola embodies a forward-looking approach to global agriculture, emphasizing collaboration, innovation, and mutual growth opportunities.
