Latest round of TPP negotiations ongoing

Advertisement

The current round of negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, a multilateral trade agreement between countries in North and South America, Asia and the South Pacific, began on Aug. 22 and will end Aug. 30. Many of the specifics in trade negotiations are not initially made public, but trade representatives have reaffirmed their desire to finish the multilateral trade agreement this year. U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman also said that trade ministers will be more involved in negotiations moving forward and will likely meet again in October. Access to Japan, a top U.S. wheat customer, is of particular interest to wheat farmers. However, U.S. negotiators will not be able to pursue certain conditions, such as market access, with Japanese officials until final review of a recently-completed report from the International Trade Commission. NAWG and U.S. Wheat Associates will continue to monitor negotiations as they occur. More information on TPP can be found at www.ustr.gov.
