Trans-Atlantic Trade Agreement Offers Opportunities for U.S. Dairy Industry

June 4, 2013

NMPF testified last month in support of the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) at the Trade Policy Staff Committee’s hearing on the proposed agreement between the U.S. and the European Union.

In his testimony, NMPF’s Jaime Castaneda said that “a comprehensive trade agreement will remove the many tariff and nontariff barriers that hinder U.S. dairy market access.” He added that “we firmly believe that TTIP offers a genuine opportunity to expand U.S. dairy exports and chip away at the sizable dairy trade deficit currently in place.”

NMPF believes that this is a golden opportunity for U.S. dairy exports and looks forward to working with U.S. government officials to reach a comprehensive and acceptable agreement for the dairy industry.
