Japan might increase the amount of agriculture trade conducted with the U.S. through potential trade deal that was announced by President Trump following a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Bill Shipley, president of the Iowa Soybean Association, says, "To say China matters to U.S. soybean farmers would be an understatement." He invited President Trump to his farm for a visit about trade policies.
U.S. President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said they have agreed to intensify trade consultations between the two longtime allies, with an aim to expand investment and trade between their countries.
U.S. President Trump said last week he would reconsider joining the landmark Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, if it were a “substantially better” deal than the one offered to President Obama.
