On Tuesday, 44 House members sent a letter to Taiwan’s Ambassador to the U.S. asking for the removal of import restrictions on U.S. agricultural products, including pork.

NPPC is also asking the Trump Administration to reduce or eliminate the benefits Thailand receives under the program, which gives duty-free access to certain goods entering the United States.
