Cargill released statements of support for the Trans Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement (TPP FTA) and for Japan’s entry into TPP FTA negotiations at APEC

“Cargill believes that open trade is one of the most effective ways to achieve food security and promote economic growth in the world. Cargill strongly supports the TPP and is working to achieve what USTR Ambassador Kirk calls a ‘21st Century Free Trade Agreement’ that will go beyond commitments in existing bilateral FTAs. The goal of the TPP is to serve as a pathway to Asia-Pacific regional economic integration.”

“Cargill is pleased that the Japanese government has formally declared their intention to join the TPP negotiations. It is a tremendous boost to the TPP to have the third largest economy in the world join the negotiations.”
