Agricultural interests are a key to the success of trade relationships with the United States, and the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is one of the leading players. On February 3, NPPC Vice President and Counsel Nick Giordano will be visiting Tokyo from Washington, DC, to share his insights on trade strategies and negotiations with Japan and China, as well as to talk about the broader U.S. trade agenda.
The NPPC will be observing implementation of the recent Japan–US trade agreement and is supportive of a larger bilateral pact between the United States and Japan. Giordano will also comment on the current state of play in Washington and will welcome input from our members.
