USCA testifies before USITC on free trade agreement
U.S. Cattlemen's Association Executive Vice President Jess Peterson testified March 3 before the U.S. International Trade Commission on behalf of ranchers across the country.
The USITC had requested testimony on the probable economic implications of a potential U.S. Free Trade Agreement with Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam--the seven countries that the United States has identified with which they will engage and negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. Specifically, the USITC was asking for the potential economic effect of providing duty-free treatment for imports of products from the seven TPP countries on both U.S. competitive products, their industries, and U.S. consumers.
Established in March 2007, USCA is committed to concentrating its efforts in Washington, D.C., to enhance and expand the cattle industry's voice on Capitol Hill. USCA has a full-time presence in Washington, giving cattle producers across the country a strong influence on policy development.
