NPPC President Excited About Trade Deal Possibilities

 

United States Trade Representative Michael Froman heads off this month to Tokyo for talks on the Trans Pacific Partnership.   National Pork Producers Council President Randy Spronk says his group is excited about that potential trade deal and what it could mean for America’s pork producers.

Spronk says Froman’s other trade deal priority will ramp up in October and that’s the Trans Atlantic free trade agreement with the European Union. He says if those barriers can come down, that also holds great potential for pork producers.

Spronk says because trade is so important for pork producers it’s also necessary that the President be granted Trade Promotion authority so those deals can move quickly and easily.
