USSEC Achieves “Highly Effective” Rating


USSEC CEO Jim Sutter announced Friday that the organization achieved the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) rating “highly effective.”
USSEC’s rating is based on its processes, including its Unified Export Strategy (UES), which the organization has worked hard to continuously improve.
Mr. Sutter stated that USSEC received higher FY16 allocations from both the Foreign Market Development (FMD) and Market Access Program (MAP). “This is very impressive not only because we received more money, but there was more competition for the money,” he wrote in an email.
