As part of the U.S. Trade Representative’s WTO team in Geneva, FAS personnel monitor the implementation of the Agreement on Agriculture, the Sanitary-Phytosanitary Agreement, assist with acceding-member negotiations, complement U.S. Washington, D.C.-based staff in the development, presentation, and negotiation of U.S. Agriculture positions at the WTO, and provide a liaison between the WTO Members and visiting U.S. agricultural interests.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Geneva-based personnel are Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) employees working towards improved U.S. agricultural exporter participation in the Swiss market. We represent U.S. agricultural interests to the Swiss Government in Berne, as well as promote the sale of U.S. food, fiber, fisheries and forestry products to Swiss citizens.
