From the Introduction: "This report identifies selected current major trade issues for U.S. agriculture that may be of interest in the 117th Congress. It begins by examining a series of overarching issues. These include U.S. agricultural trade and its importance to the sector, a brief description of the trade policy pursued by the Trump Administration and its implications for U.S. agricultural exports, a discussion of the ongoing and proposed new trade negotiations, and an update on World Trade Organization (WTO) agricultural issues related to the United States. The report then reviews a number of ongoing trade policy concerns to U.S. agriculture, including nontariff measures and trade barriers and disputes involving specialty crops, livestock, and dairy. The format for all issues is similar, consisting of background and perspective on the issue at hand and an assessment of its current status."
