IFE to recruit international delegations

The 2008 International Poultry Expo (IPE) and the International Feed Expo (IFE) will be part of the US Department of Commerce's International Buyer Program.

Under this program, the department's US Commercial Service recruits foreign buyer delegations from US embassies abroad and takes them to trade shows in the US to facilitate matchmaking with American businesses who are exhibiting at the show.

The IBP enables US companies who are interested in exporting to meet with potential sales representatives and strategic partners without ever leaving the country.
