Key Issues:Trade

National Corn Growers Association President Kevin Skunes made the following statement on the announcement that the United States and Japan would begin formal trade negotiations.

 

“Japan is a top export market for U.S. corn and, for many years, U.S. corn farmers have valued this long-standing partnership. Since withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, NCGA has urged the administration to re-engage Japan in negotiating a trade agreement. The announcement that talks will begin is welcome news to American corn farmers.”
