Washington, DC—September 25, 2019....Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after the United States and Japan signed a trade agreement at the UN General Assembly to expand market access for U.S. exporters:
“Today’s deal between the United States and Japan will benefit Arkansas’s farmers, ranchers, and producers. Increased market access for U.S. agricultural products, including beef, pork, and dairy, will support our economy and businesses. It’s another step forward in modernizing our trade policies, and I’m pleased to see us negotiating from strength. Securing new trade deals, as well as passing proposals like the USMCA, is critical to leveling the playing field for hardworking Americans.”
