NCBA Applauds Greater US Beef Access to Japan, Hopes Other Nation's will Follow Japan's Example

Fri, 17 May 2019 13:28:26 CDT

NCBA Applauds Greater US Beef Access to Japan, Hopes Other Nation's will Follow Japan's Example National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Jennifer Houston today issued the following statement regarding the announcement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that Japan will allow products from U.S. cattle, regardless of age, to be imported into that country for the first time since 2003:



"This is great news for American cattle producers, and Secretary Sonny Perdue and the Trump Administration deserve a lot of credit for helping knock down this non-tariff trade barrier in Japan. This underscores the safety of the U.S. beef herd, and it will hopefully send a signal to other Asian nations that non-science-based trade barriers like this one should be eliminated in their countries, as well.



"Tariff rates grab all the headlines, but non-tariff barriers are often just as important, if not more so, when it comes to determining market access. Hopefully this will help spotlight this important point and lead to more trade victories in the near future."
