||U. S. Wheat Associates Trade Policy
U.S. wheat producers support free and fair trade practices around the world. U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) works with our customers worldwide to create the most fair and competitive environment possible. Such an environment ensures that consumers, our customers and our producers are able to receive and deliver the best product at the best price.
To assist our producers and our customers with trade policy issues, USW utilizes the expertise of staff around the world, information produced by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in addition to analysis by other trade experts.
Trade policy efforts complement USW’s market development work. USW works to address a wide range of issues, including:
- Trade negotiations to improve market access,
- Monitoring and enforcement of past trade agreements to ensure U.S. producers compete on an agreed upon playing field for market access and domestic support,
- Observe and raise awareness on phytosanitary measures that are not scientifically sound or that are managed in a way that is not least trade distorting that impeded market access.
