A new website details the benefits of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement for the U.S. economy in general, and beef exports in particular. The ‘TPP Now!’ site features an interactive map that explains the reduction of tariffs on U.S. beef product exports to the participating countries and presents a timeline outlining steps in the Congressional approval process required to pass and implement the agreement. A Question and Answer section addresses concerns regarding the safety of foreign beef product imports and reinforces the benefits of TPP passage to the U.S. economy, noting the deal will support an additional 650,000 American jobs, while growing exports by $123.5 billion annually.
