Vietnam and Philippines Trade Mission

March 15 - 23, 2019
Event Contact Information
Joseph Rude or Mark Fischer

Vietnam and the Philippines are growing markets for American goods and services. Iowa Economic Development Authority's (IEDA) International Trade Office invites Iowa companies in all sectors to dive deeper into this opportunity. Participating Iowa companies will meet one-on-one with prospective customers and partners, which is crucial to establishing business relationships in the region. An optional side-trip to Asia’s largest animal agriculture tradeshow, VIV Bangkok will be offered. There will be a separate meat group itinerary for pork and beef suppliers and aligned agriculture groups. IEDA will help companies meet business objectives by tailoring a custom itinerary. Why consider this trip?

  • Vietnam and Philippines have a combined population of nearly 200 million people.
  • The south Asian markets are growing at over seven percent per year and are eager for quality products, innovative technologies and new business opportunities.

For more information, manufacturing companies should contact Joseph Rude at or 515.348.6244 and meat companies and agriculture groups, contact Mark Fischer at or 515.348.6241.
