Minnesota Pork Producers Talk Trade In Nation’s Capital

 

Minnesota Pork Producers are in the nation’s capital this week speaking with members of Congress about various issues. Pork President Kevin Hugoson says their primary topic has been trade. He says the Trans Pacific Partnership could be a very lucrative free trade deal for producers and that those talks are proceeding well.

Hugoson says there are some details that are yet to be worked out but they’re looking forward to having TPP negotiators in the U.S. next week to continue those discussions.

He says another important deal that holds great promise but may take some time to work out because of past barriers is the Trans Atlantic Free trade deal.

Hugoson says having the President’s support in those deals should help them get passed.
