The National Milk Producers Federation wants Japan to come to the table with the TPP discussions and provide market access by lowering its tariffs. Federation’s Chris Galen says Japan is key to the deal not only for its market but also for bringing in Canada which also has put up market access barriers.
Galen stopped short of saying the U.S. should proceed with the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement without Japan or Canada if they won’t lower their tariffs. He says first we need to try and get them to the table but if we can’t then determine later what to do.
Dairy isn’t the only commodity they’re unwilling to bring their tariffs down on. They’re also leaving tariffs on rice, wheat, beef ,pork and sugar
