AFBF President Zippy Duvall has been appointed to the White House’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations.
Members of the ACTPN advise the president on the potential effects of proposed and current trade agreements. The ACTPN, which is administered by the U.S. Trade Representative, is the main trade advisory committee that provides policy information and advice to the president.
“I am deeply honored to be called to serve as a member of the White House’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations,” Duvall said. “I look forward to taking a seat at the table on behalf of America’s farmers and ranchers as we look to further our agricultural trade opportunities. We must keep building on our current gains in markets abroad, foster lasting relationships with our international partners and, of course, effectively enforce current trade agreements to ensure agriculture continues to boost our economy and create jobs for all Americans.”
