U.S., Japan Hold another Round of Bilateral TPP Talks

Negotiators from the United States and Japan held two days of bilateral Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks earlier this week, with USTR issuing a brief readout on the meetings.

Hiroshi Oe, Japan’s deputy chief negotiator, said this round of talks produced “a step forward” on market access terms for U.S. beef and pork, but added that the two sides still have difficult issues to resolve. More details from his comments are available from The Japan Times.
