Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee will hold a hearing June 14 on ways to expand U.S. agricultural trade and eliminate barriers to U.S. exports. The focus of the hearing will include U.S. successes as the world’s largest agricultural exporter, including job creation and economic growth; foreign tariff and non-tariff barriers faced by U.S. agricultural exports; and how current and future trade agreements and other efforts can reduce those barriers. Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert, R-Wash., said maintaining agricultural exports in the face of increasing global competition is important for the U.S. economy to grow and that trade agreements can be “an important tool” to that end as long as they are “done right and are enforced.”
