American Farm Bureau Federation Supports Adding Japan to TPP

American Farm Bureau Federation Supports Adding Japan to TPP
Bob Stallman, president,American Farm Bureau Federation, issued the following statement regarding Japan Joining the Trans Pacific Partnership


"The American Farm Bureau Federation supports the addition of Japan as a negotiating partner in the Trans Pacific Partnership. As a major U.S. trading partner, Japan would bolster the reach of the TPP for U.S. agriculture.


"As the fourth-largest U.S. agricultural export market, with nearly $14 billion in purchases in 2012, Japan is crucial to America's farmers and ranchers. Both the United States and Japan will benefit from Japan being a TPP partner, and by sharing in improved sanitary and phytosanitary standards for agricultural trade and expanded market access with TPP nations.


"It's important that new entrants to the TPP recognize this is a comprehensive agreement and that individual sectors should not be excluded from the negotiation. The TPP provides an opportunity to strengthen trade relationships, address remaining barriers and improve the competitiveness of the Asia/Pacific market."
