Yoho Statement on U.S.-Japan Trade Deal
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL), member of the House Agriculture and Foreign Affairs Committees gave the following statement after President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced a trade deal increasing market access for U.S. agricultural producers in Japan:
“Today’s announcement of the bilateral trade agreement between the U.S. and Japan is welcome news for Florida’s agriculture community. Both countries will benefit from a reduction in tariffs and an increase in market access.
“Once the agreement is finalized, Japan’s 127 million consumers will have increased access to America’s high-quality agriculture products. Japan will be reducing tariffs on fresh and frozen beef as well as, eliminating tariffs for blueberries, and sweet corn to name a few. I applaud President Trump and his administration for the work they did on behalf of the American farmer.”
