2017 Grays Harbor Project Christmas Trade Mission


Late this November, we are assembling our team to travel to Philippines and Malaysia to continue our work solidifying our relationships and selling new crop soybeans and soybean meal for our States, AGP, and our farmer members under the Grays Harbor project. In addition, we will be extending our appreciation to buyers in the Philippines at our annual Christmas party. We will also be traveling to Malaysia to encourage new and current buyers for our soy products. Join us in this effort on behalf of your State Soybean organization, you are most welcome. The dates are from November 25th to December 7th. I have attached a spreadsheet with a detailed schedule for your reference and well as a save the date notice.
Your soybean organization will be responsible for airfare and hotels. The maximum cost for the airfare should between $4000 around $7000 per person which is business class across the water and economy class domestic travel. Your association/ board would also be expected to cover hotels. Hotels should be budgeted at a maximum of $200 per night for 9 nights (it will likely be less). Meals, incidentals, and in country travel and transport would be part of the project’s cost.
The proposed schedule is as follows:
Saturday, November 25th
