American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) announced by President Biden.

“The launch of the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework is a positive step, and we hope additional progress will quickly follow. Trade is critical to the success of U.S. farmers and ranchers, including improving relationships and reaching new agreements with this region’s countries. The IPEF will help reduce barriers, improve the adoption of science-based standards and grow American agricultural exports to the region.

“We urge the administration to work with other nations through the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework to expand access to American goods throughout the world.”
