Podcast: US trade policy and its impact on food and agriculture

This article is powered by Issue Monitor

Trade policy has been a key feature of President Donald Trump’s first year in office and the effects have been felt in the US agribusiness sector.  

In campaigning prior to his election, Trump made a number of pledges including withdrawing the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he did in the first few days of his Presidency, and renegotiating NAFTA, the two decades-old agreement with Mexico and Canada.

With talks on the latter trade agreement well underway and likely to be concluded one way or another next year, 2018 promises to be a defining year for the US agri-food sector.

In this podcast, IEG Policy reviews the past year and looks ahead to the next 12 months, including the prospects for the resumption of TTIP talks and the possibility of a post-Brexit UK-US trade deal. Simply select the Play button below.
