Global Trade Pacts Progress without US Dairy

As the United States takes a different direction on trade policy, several countries are forging ahead with new pacts, giving preferential market access to other trade players and changing the landscape for U.S. dairy products abroad. Most recently, the European Union (EU) announced it will begin negotiations on a free trade agreement with Australia and will hold trade talks with New Zealand in the future. Countries in the Asia-Pacific region are also making progress on trade agreements, which will change the landscape in one of U.S. dairy’s fastest-growing export markets.
