Foreign Agricultural Service
The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) works to improve foreign market access for U.S. products, build new markets, improve the competitive position of U.S. agriculture in the global marketplace, and provide food aid and technical assistance to foreign countries.
FAS has the primary responsibility for USDA's international activities-market development, trade agreements and negotiations, and the collection and analysis of statistics and market information. It also administers USDA's capacity building and food aid programs, and helps increase income and food availability in developing nations by mobilizing expertise for agriculturally led economic growth.
FAS also enhances U.S. agriculture's competitiveness by providing linkages to global resources and international organizations.
