THE VOICE OF THE UK PIG INDUSTRY

NPA is active on members' behalf in Brussels & Whitehall, and with processors, supermarkets & caterers - fighting for the growth and pros-perity of the UK pig industry.

The same thing happened with China. United States agricultural exports soared to 32.8 billion last year, an increase of 174 percent from 2001 when China received WTO membership.

United States pig producers have urged government to support the extending of ‘permanent normal trade relations’ status to Vietnam, as a necessary step in the WTO membership process.

“The agreement will play an important role in our ongoing efforts to expand exports to Asia,“ they said.
