The American Soybean Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, American Seed Trade Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Milk Producers Association, US Poultry & Egg Export Council and more than 80 other agriculture groups sent a letter to President Trump asking him to reduce and eliminate tarifs and other restrictions on trade in the Asia-Pacific region.

“We hope your Administration will create such opportunities for our sector by deepening U.S. economic engagement in this critical region while responding to the Asia-only regional trade agreements being negotiated by our foreign competitors,” the letter states.

“America’s food and agriculture sector is poised to grow internationally, building upon its well-deserved reputation for high quality products, trusted brands and constant innovation. Our ability to continue to create jobs and support economic growth in rural America depends on maintaining and increasing access to markets outside the United States through existing and future trade agreements.”
