The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means held a hearing on Wednesday, Oct. 11 to discuss expanding U.S. trade relationships in the Asia-Pacific region. TSCRA director Kelley Sullivan testified before the committee to highlight the importance of trade to the U.S. beef industry and note the successes brought about by agreements like NAFTA and KORUS.
Kelley also asked that negotiators focus on securing new market access for U.S. beef, starting with a replacement for TPP. “It’s time for the U.S. government to make it right, and expend all necessary resources to secure strong market access for future generations of U.S. beef producers,” she said.
