Trade Advisory Committees
The advisory committee system was created by the U.S. Congress in 1974 to ensure that U.S. trade policy and trade negotiating objectives adequately reflect U.S. public- and private-sector interests. The Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee (APAC) and six Agricultural Technical Advisory Committees (ATACs) advise the Secretary of Agriculture and the U.S. Trade Representative about a wide range of agricultural trade issues.
