Turkey Industry Demands Movement on Trade Promotion

29 January 2015

US – The National Turkey Federation has urged Congress to renew powers for trade negotiators which the body says ensure effective negotiation and conclusion of beneficial trade agreements.

Renewal of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), expired since 2007, would address a “vacuum” seen as giving negotiators “unnecessary excuse to drag their feet” in reaching beneficial deals, the Federation said.

"Trade Promotion Authority gives our trade negotiators the maximum flexibility to get a deal that expands turkey sales abroad and that benefit all American poultry and livestock producers,” said Federation President, Joel Brandenberger.

“Congress retains the final say on whether a deal should be approved, and we urge the House and Senate to move swiftly to grant this authority.”
