Agriculture Trade Promotion (ATP) activities are well under way at ASA’s WISHH program. This year WISHH has conducted market research in East and West Africa and implemented a series of technical servicing activities for aquaculture in West Africa, thanks to ATP support. Building a prosperous aquaculture industry is key to the strategy to increase U.S. soy exports to West Africa, as soy can play an integral role in the production of various aquaculture feeds. WISHH is also using ATP funds to explore new market opportunities in Togo, Burkina Faso, and Kenya and is organizing a business training for key stakeholders in Kampala, Uganda in November to continue to build strategic partnerships throughout the continent.

The ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health program welcomed Illinois Soybean Association farmer leaders and staff to Cambodia this week to see updates on WISHH aquaculture and feed activities. ISA came to the Southeast Asian country on January
