U.S. Wheat Farmers and The Trans-Pacific Partnership
The United States is one of only a few countries with the land, climate and technology needed to produce abundant
crops of high quality wheat. Wheat farmers need trade agreements that remove artificial barriers and level the playing field with other wheat exporters to take advantage of
this huge economic opportunity. TPP was announced under the Bush Administration and negotiated by the Obama Administration with bipartisan
recognition that the dynamic Asia-Pacific region will drive future growth for U.S. workers, businesses and farmers. In the agreement, TPP member countries have established new trade standards by dramatically reducing barriers and setting up ground rules to ensure free and fair competition.
