NCC Statement on Conclusion of TPP Negotiations

October 5, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. РNational Chicken Council (NCC) President Mike Brown released the following statement about the conclusion today of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations in Atlanta:

“NCC applauds U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and his team of negotiators for their years of work on the TPP.¬† The TPP represents a significant opportunity to expand U.S. chicken exports and bring increased economic benefits to chicken farmers and companies across the country.

“Our major goals in this deal are to get a strong commitment on enforcement, in particular in the area of sanitary and phytosanitary measures.¬† Second, we hope to see that the long-protected Canadian market is finally opened to free trade for poultry.

“We look forward to reviewing what we hope will be a commercially meaningful and high standard agreement that will open markets and increase U.S. chicken exports.”
