The U.S. Meat Export Federation recently announced the speaker lineup and registration details for its 2023 Spring Conference, set for May 24-26 in Minneapolis, MN.  The opening general session will feature USMEF's senior staff from the Asia Pacific region, who will discuss emerging issues in key Asian markets, including how the removal of many COVID restrictions could provide momentum for the region's foodservice sector.  The following day, USMEF will examine the state of U.S.-Mexico trade relations.  At the closing session, former House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson – who oversaw development of four farm bills during his 30 years in Congress – will discuss the challenges lawmakers face as they work to craft an effective, pro-trade farm bill over the coming year.  In addition to the general sessions, the Beef, Pork, Exporter and Feedgrain/Oilseed breakouts will provide in-depth discussions on topics relevant to each sector.


More information, including registration details, are available on the USMEF's Website.
