Trade Agreements

Free trade agreements (FTAs) help expand global market opportunities for U.S. producers and exporters. Bilateral and multilateral trade agreements strip away trade barriers, reduce or eliminate tariffs, and promote investment and economic growth.

FAS partners with other U.S. government agencies and the private sector to not only negotiate new trade agreements that benefit U.S. agriculture but also to hold our trading partners accountable for their commitments under existing FTAs.
