Cattle Group Says USTR Made Right Decision With South Korea On TPP

Cattle Group Says USTR Made Right Decision With South Korea On TPP

South Korea recently expressed interest in joining the Trans Pacific Partnership talks. However, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman says they’ll have to wait until the current talks are concluded before being able to join.  National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Vice President of Government Relations Colin Woodall says they agree with that decision even though South Korea is an important customer for U.S. ag products.

Woodall says once the current discussions are done, then is the time to add other countries to the mix. He says this shouldn’t impact U.S. trade with South Korea because of the current FTA we have in place.

The addition of South Korea to the list of TPP nations would be a major plus for the trading bloc, regardless of when it happens.
