U.S. agricultural exports to Trans-Pacific Partnership countries

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is the largest free trade agreement that the United States has been a part of since the North American Free Trade Agreement in the 1990s.

The 12 countries included in the deal include the United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Australia and New Zealand.

Negotiations concluded Oct. 5 in Atlanta, and some trade experts believe they set up the U.S. agriculture industry to be the deal’s biggest winner.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Data show that the U.S. food and agricultural exports reached a record $150 billion in 2014. Nations included in the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal accounted for a combined 42 percent of that total.

The graphics below show how much key U.S. agricultural exports have gone to TPP countries from January 2010 through August 2015.

Specific exports include wheat and wheat products, beef, corn and corn products, dairy, sugar and sugar products, eggs, pork, soybeans and soybean products, poultry, rice and rice products, and tobacco.
