NCBA Says Japan Election Results Positive For Trade

NCBA Says Japan Election Results Positive For Trade

Last week the Liberal Democratic party of Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo was returned to power following elections. Both the National Pork Producers Council and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association say it shows strong support for the Trans Pacific Partnership talks. NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says Abe has been not only supportive of the TPP but a great friend of the United States.

Woodall says it’s also good in that Abe earlier gave support for increased U.S. beef access to his country.

Woodall says although TPP talks are going slowly they are proceeding at the expected pace. He says when details have to be worked out between multiple countries it takes time to broker a positive agreement.
