AGRICULTURE SECRETARY MIKE JOHANNS REGARDING THE LAUNCH OF FREE TRADE AGREEMENT TALKS WITH MALAYSIA

Release No. 0070.06
FAS PR 0030-06

Contact: Ed Loyd (202)720-4623

"I'm pleased that Malaysia and the United States will be negotiating a bilateral free trade agreement that has the potential to enhance market access for U.S. agricultural exports.

"Malaysia, our fourth largest agricultural market in Southeast Asia, purchased $390 million of our fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, wheat, soybeans and other products last year. A free trade agreement will generate additional export opportunities for our farmers and ranchers, strengthen our economic ties, encourage development and improve access to Malaysian consumers seeking high quality U.S. products."
