Make Agricultural Trade Great Again

Make Agricultural Trade Great Again

U.S. farmers and ranchers are actively seeking to enhance access in existing foreign markets like Canada, China, Japan, Mexico and South Korea, and gain access in new markets, e.g. re-entering the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Efforts to improve U.S. agricultural trade include modernization of the North American Free Trade Agreement, re-negotiation of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement, agricultural concessions as a result of U.S.-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue, and renewed interest by the White House in the countries that comprise Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, formerly known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. CPTPP includes Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. Additionally, in the U.S. there is interest in engaging with Japan – our fourth-largest agricultural trading partner – on a bilateral level.
