President Obama’s trip to Japan has been a disappointing one in trying to get them to eliminate tariffs under the Trans Pacific Partnership. Japan has been trying to exempt over 500 products, many of them ag from going to zero on tariff levels in the deal. South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association President Cory Eich says that puts the talks at a deadlock and doesn’t leave much hope for an overall deal. He’s not sure if we should go ahead with a TPP agreement without Japan.

Eich says there may be a glimmer of hope in trying to get Japan to move and we shouldn’t give up trying to convince them.

Japan’s economy minister Akria Aman ,their top negotiator says too many issues remain unresolved in the trade discussions at this time. The President’s trip to Japan ends today.
