NCBA Joins Alliance Pushing For TPP Trade Agreement

NCBA Joins Alliance Pushing For TPP Trade Agreement

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has joined cattlemen representing Australia, New Zealand and Canada in pushing for a comprehensive Trans Pacific Partnership agreement.  NCBA’s Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says their alliance has a set of principles they’re supporting to improve market access and eliminate trade barriers.

Woodall says the alliance is hoping the TPP deal they’re backing will include risk based science decision making based on international science based standards and that will be used as a template for other future trade deals like the Trans Atlantic FTA between the U.S. and European Union.

He says the Alliance members are hoping that by removing trade barriers and tariffs it will create more fair and open market access for all nations.
