NPPC Anxious For Next Round Of TPP Talks

NPPC Anxious For Next Round Of TPP Talks

Trans Pacific Partnership negotiators are scheduled to meet this week in the United States for their 20th round of discussions.  National Pork Producer Council’s Dave Warner says the potential of that free trade agreement for America’s pork producers is significant.

Warner says the deal has the potential to more than double the amount of U.S. pork exported to Japan which is our biggest pork customer already. He says leaders would like to see the TPP finalized yet this year.

12 countries are taking part in the TPP discussions including the two biggest customers of U.S pork, Japan and Mexico. Another lucrative U.S. pork customer involved in the discussions is Vietnam.
