Executive Director of Food and Agriculture Export Alliance to Testify about India’s Agricultural Growth to House Ways and Means Committee

Richard Fritz, the Executive Director of the Food and Agriculture Export Alliance, will be testifying in Washington, D. C. to the House Ways and Means Committee about the growing role of India in global agriculture trade.  USSEC is a founding member of the Food and Agriculture Export Alliance.

Mr. Fritz will be sharing how India is positioning itself to become a more active player in agricultural trade as the country faces growth in demand for aquaculture, poultry and human demand for soy feed and food.  USSEC programming has established critical baselines which will serve as the building blocks for the increased usage of domestic protein, ultimately reducing exports of soy protein and driving the in-country domestic consumption for protein sufficiency, resulting in soy protein imports to India.
