The executive director of Farmers for Free Trade says overcoming non-tariff trade barriers should be a priority for the Biden administration as they continue work on the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity.
Brian Kuehl says consistent sanitary and phytosanitary measures for all countries involved would benefit agriculture.
“Those are really important issues and we could see improvements in exports from beef to pork to commodity crops. We need to see how far the administration can get with that.”
The Indo-Pacific Economic Framework establishes high-standard commitments for economic engagement for at least 14 countries including the United States, Japan, South Korea and Australia.
