U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced new members to the Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee. The 129 private sector members were appointed this week along with six new members to the Agricultural Technical Advisory Committees.
Froman says the new appointments will give "critical advice" as the trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership are formed.
The group of committee members will serve until June 15, 2019.
