The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) has primary responsibility for the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) overseas programs—market development, international trade agreements and negotiations, and the collection of statistics and market information. It also administers USDA's export credit guarantee and food aid programs and helps increase income and food availability in developing nations by mobilizing expertise for agriculturally led economic growth. Beginning in 2003, FAS began to return to a long-abandoned role in national security. The FAS mission statement reads, "To create economic opportunity for American agriculture by expanding global markets," and its motto is, "Linking U.S. Agriculture to the World."
