The Czech Republic

Though with only a population of 10.6 million, the Czech Republic is one of the most prosperous and industrialized economies in central Europe and serves as an entry point for U.S. companies expanding beyond traditional markets in western Europe to the developing markets in the east. As the European Union (EU) member, the Czech market complies with EU market entry regulations.

Although locally produced and EU-imported agricultural products dominate the Czech market, there are good opportunities for U.S. products, particularly at the upper end of the market.  In 2018, the total agricultural, fish and forestry imports from the United States valued at $108 million.

FAS Prague assists with export of equine semen
The Foreign Agricultural Service at the U.S. Embassy in the Czech Republic assists with the special shipment of export-ready frozen equine semen addressed to the Czech Quarter Horse Association. 66,000 dollars’ worth of the precious contents has been funded by the USDA grant through the federal Quality Samples Program. The beneficiary is an international affiliate of the American Quarter Horse Association, based in Amarillo, Texas. Taking advantage of the state-of-the-art reproduction technique is for the benefit of both the Czech gene pool as well as worldwide breeding of this unique horse. The semen from the famous “The Four Sixes” ranch, standing some of the world’s finest American Quarter Horse stallions, will be distributed to Czech breeders under strict selection criteria. About 20 foals are expected to be born in spring 2020.
