US-Japan Trade Deal Announcement Called Huge News by USMEF CEO Dan Halstrom

US-Japan Trade Deal Announcement Called Huge News by USMEF CEO Dan Halstrom


This past Sunday, President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced an agreement in principle that will greatly improve access for U.S. red meat in Japan – the largest value destination for U.S. pork and beef exports.


U.S. Meat Export Federation President and CEO Dan Halstrom is featured in the latest Beef Buzz and talked about the importance of leveling the competitive playing field in Japan for U.S. pork and beef, which currently face significant tariff disadvantages compared to products imported from countries participating in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and the Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement. Halstrom calls the announcement made by the leaders of the two countries "huge news" for both beef and prok producers.


Halstrom will be leading a delegation of pork, beef, corn and soybean producers and other U.S. ag industry leaders that will visit Japan in early September, and he notes that key customers in Japan will also be pleased to be gaining better access to U.S. red meat products.


Listen to Halstrom discuss the importance of a potential deal with Japan on today’s Beef Buzz.


The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network and is a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
