Trade Agreements Beef

U.S. beef and beef exports to Japan currently face a competitive disadvantage. Major U.S. competitors in the Japanese market, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, receive preferential market access treatment in accordance with the CP-TPP. The U.S.-Japan trade agreement is necessary to keep U.S. exports of beef and beef products competitive. The United States agreed to write in a subsidiary letter that the United States would amend its WTO national quotas (TRQ) to eliminate the allocation of 200 tonnes per country to Japan and increase the “other countries or territories” allocation to 65,005 tonnes. Such a measure will allow Japan to compete with other countries for access to “other countries or territories” quotas. In this podcast, Esther Guy-Meakin of B-LNZ talks about her team`s work on behalf of beef and sheep payers and why trade policy is not about profits, but about strong agreements. We discuss why taxes are used to support this work, what has been done so far, what the team is currently working on for farmers and what they see as problems for the future. Topics covered are: CPTPP, tariffs, free trade agreements, Brexit, quotas, cooperation and cooperation of NZ Inc, deals and no-deals, and why calm, stable and predictable trade is good for all. Fortunately, Australian red meat and livestock have access to many export markets, thanks to robust integrity systems, unrivalled disease-free status and a record of Australian industry, in partnership with the government, in the review of preferential trade reform. It is Dan Halstrom`s response to the news that the upper house of the Japanese Parliament approved on December 4 the trade agreement between the United States and Japan, which will greatly improve access to American red meat in Japan.

Important provisions of the agreement, approved by the Japanese House of Commons on November 19, were published in October by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). Our trade in sheep and beef, both with the UK and the EU, is inextricably linked by access to quotas and both should be affected by the UK`s exit from the internal market. NCBA President Jennifer Houston confirmed the appreciation of the U.S. beef industry. “There`s no other way to say it: this is a huge victory and a great day for beef producers and Japanese consumers.” Free trade agreements (FTAs) or closer economic partnerships promote stronger trade and trade relations between participating countries and open up opportunities for Australian exporters and investors to expand their operations to key markets. Free trade agreements can accelerate trade liberalization by achieving benefits faster than multilateral or regional processes. Halstrom, President and CEO of the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF), said that with the trade agreement now approved by the Japanese Parliament between the United States and Japan, the U.S. beef and pork industry looks forward to expanding opportunities in Japan, which is already the main value target for U.S.

pork and beef exports (the combined value of exports in 2018 was $3.7 billion). “In addition to the benefits to the U.S. industry, Japanese consumers will now benefit from more affordable access to a wider range of Americans.
