Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07) today issued the following statement after the signing of the new United States-Japan Trade Agreement:

“The trade agreement announced today between the U.S. and Japan is a big win for North Carolina’s farm families,” said Congressman Rouzer. “Trade with countries that share our values is more important than ever. Greater access to the Japanese market means stronger farm revenues for North Carolina farmers.”

A member of the House Agriculture Committee, Rouzer serves as the Ranking Republican on the Livestock and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee.
