In January, 11 countries announced the new Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which replaces the original TPP that included the United States. The countries are Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.
In their letter to President Trump, the senators said, “We ask that you prioritize engagement with the TPP so that the American people can prosper from the tremendous opportunities that these trading partners bring.”
IDFA has stressed to the administration and Congress that trade agreements with markets in the Asia-Pacific region are critically important to the continued growth of the U.S. dairy industry. IDFA will continue to work with federal officials and members of congress on expanding opportunities for dairy in new trade agreements and seeking more market access for dairy products abroad.
