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.
It’s difficult for any business to remain profitable for nearly 140 years, but brothers Kent and Barry Holden, of Holden Farms in Northfield, Minn., run one of the largest pork operations in the country.
It’s obvious the five members of the fifth generation at Holden Farms are comfortable with one another, and their father-owners. A friendly camaraderie permeates the meeting room where they gather to share ideas.
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.
