NAT'L CORN GROWERS ASSN SUPPORTS TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT
Source: National Corn Growers Association news release

The following is a statement from National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling regarding today's signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.

"After five years of negotiations, we are pleased to see the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement take another step forward today. The National Corn Growers Association supports the Trans-Pacific Partnership because it would give America's farmers and ranchers greater access to some of the world's fastest-growing economies.

This agreement is good for both corn farmers and our friends and partners in the livestock industry. We all want to see more American grains, meat and dairy on dinner tables around the world.

"This agreement will strengthen America's influence in the Asia-Pacific region and set the tone for future international trade agreements, such as with the European Union. By supporting TPP, Congress can send a powerful message: the United States will lead on trade.

That's why NCGA members will be going to Capitol Hill in the coming months, asking Congress to vote in favor of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in 2016."
