President Obama this week repeated his desire that the Trans Pacific Partnership be completed this year. Nebraska Pork Producer’s President Shane Meyer is pleased the President is weighing in on what could be a very important deal for the nation’s pork producers.
Meyer says Japan and other countries involved in the TPP are great partners for U.S. ag goods, particularly pork.
Meyer says besides getting phytosanitary barriers worked out, the key to a successful free trade deal is getting rid of or reducing tariffs.
The 19th round of the TPP just wrapped up in Brunei and negotiators will meet in the U.S. September 18 to the 21.
