Trade Opportunities and Risks for 2006



(DENVER) – Participants at R-CALF USA’s seventh annual convention, held last week in Denver, learned about recent trade trends in cattle and beef sectors, as well as major issues that are likely to affect their industry during the 2006 trade agenda. Terence P. Stewart, managing partner of the Washington, D.C., law offices of Stewart and Stewart, provided members of the organization with a detailed analysis of cattle and beef trade in his keynote address.



“This year will be one of both important opportunities and potential risks in international trade for U.S. cattle producers,” Stewart said. “With WTO (World Trade Organization) negotiations slated for conclusion at the end of the year, talks on numerous free trade agreements (FTAs) underway, renewal of the Farm Bill on the agenda in Congress, and health and safety issues continuing to play a central role in our trading relationships, R-CALF’s leadership on trade will be more important than ever in 2006.”



In his presentation, Stewart reviewed the growing U.S. trade deficit in cattle and beef, identified leading global exporters and importers, and discussed the need to address global distortions in the cattle and beef sectors through multilateral and bilateral trade negotiations.



Stewart also provided data on cattle and beef trade regarding a number of countries with which the United States currently is negotiating free trade agreements or discussing the feasibility of such negotiations, including Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Korea, Malaysia, Panama, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates.



A PowerPoint version of Stewart’s presentation is available to view in its entirety at:
