Department of Agriculture (USDA) China

USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) has an unrivaled global network, of more than 90 Offices of Agricultural Affairs (OAA) and Agricultural Trade Offices (ATO), that connects exporters to foreign customers and provides crucial information on international agricultural markets. Covering 167 countries, FAS staff identify problems, provide practical solutions, and work to advance opportunities for U.S. agriculture and support U.S. foreign policy around the globe. FAS operates six offices in China. These include one OAA located in Beijing and five ATOs located in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Shenyang. Beijing OAA is responsible for trade policy and commodity analysis, and assists with market access and technical phytosanitary issues for all of China. Agricultural Trade Offices were created with the sole purpose of focusing on agricultural marketing efforts. All five ATOs in China provide support, assistance, and oversight to USDA cooperators, work directly with U.S. companies to help them gain the knowledge and contacts needed to begin exporting to China, and prepare and disseminate reports about China’s agricultural market. The offices coordinate U.S. participation in various trade shows, sponsor marketing activities to introduce companies handling U.S. products to key retailers, food service and food processing companies throughout China, and provide guidance in the resolution of customs clearance issues.
