The importance of ag trade

Illinois Farm Bureau is a strong advocate for trade and the importance of improving access to foreign markets for American goods and services – including agricultural products.

IFB policy supports increased agricultural exports to efficiently utilize the productive resources of American agriculture in order to enhance farm income and improve the farm economy.

Regarding free-trade agreements, we support aggressively seeking improved market access and reduced trade barriers for agriculture and other industries through the support of bilateral, regional, and multi-lateral free trade agreements.
