United Fresh Commends United States Trade Representative (USTR) Michael Froman

Mar 19, 2015

United Fresh commends United States Trade Representative (USTR) Michael Froman for seeking a dispute settlement resolution with the World Trade Organization (WTO) regarding Indonesia’s import restrictions on fruits and vegetables. Last year alone, American agricultural exports affected by Indonesia’s restrictions totaled nearly $200 million. Indonesia’s apparent breach of WTO obligations creates a spiraling domino effect, resulting in product, wage and job loss that can be felt across all segments of America’s fresh fruit and vegetable production chain. As we stated in testimony yesterday before the House Agriculture Committee, trade policies are essential to putting export and import levels on an even keel, expand access and address unfair barriers.
