Farmers and Ranchers Need Full Japanese Trade Agreement

Wed, 20 Nov 2019 14:49:21 CST

Farmers and Ranchers Need Full Japanese Trade Agreement Russell Boening, a Texas rancher, farmer and President of the Texas Farm Bureau, today told Congress that the recent trade deal with Japan is welcome, but U.S. negotiators still have work to do.


“It is obvious the U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement is a win; however, the U.S. must pursue the next phase of negotiations with Japan,” Boening told the House Ways and Means Subcommittee for Trade. “Not all agricultural products, such as rice and some dairy products, were included in this agreement. We must work toward additional market access. Sanitary, phytosanitary and biotechnology issues should also be addressed.”


At nearly $13 billion a year, Japan is the fourth-largest destination for U.S. farm exports.


“While we have a strong trading relationship with Japan, we are about to make substantial advances,” Boening said. “The new U.S.-Japan trade agreement was welcome news for farm and ranch families across the entire country. This agreement will level the Japanese trade playing field.”


Boening urged lawmakers to approve an expanded trade agreement expected next year.


“As hardworking farm and ranch families face much uncertainty, a fully comprehensive trade agreement with Japan is desperately needed. We appreciate the administration and other leaders in Washington who continue striving for more free and fair trade.”
