09 December 2014

IPPE 2013

US - Implications of US–EU free trade negotiations on animal agriculture are set to be discussed at the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).

US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) and EuroTier/DLG are hosting a programme on 'US–EU Free Trade Negotiations: What are the Implications for Animal Production?' at the 2015 IPPE.

The programme will examine the current state of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations between the United States and the European Union and the potential impact of a successful or unsuccessful outcome on both the European and American farmers and producers.

It will be held on Wednesday 28 January 2015  from 2pm to 4pm in Room A-412a, and it is free to all IPPE attendees.

The programme is a follow-up of the highly successful EuroTier/DLG programme that was offered in November in Germany and will feature several industry specialists, including Jim Sumner, president of USA Poultry & Egg Export Council, who will provide the introduction to the programme.

Dr Paul Aho, economist with Poultry Perspective, will provide a US perspective on EU–US TTIP negotiations and agriculture. Gina Tumbarello, director of international policy and trade with the American Feed Industry Association, will review TTIP implications for US poultry, pork and dairy farmers/producers, and Dr Martin Banse, director of the Thünen-Institute, will provide an European review of the TTIP implications.
