WASHINGTON – Today, National Farmers Union (NFU) President Rob Larew was appointed by President Biden to the White House Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations (ACTPN).

“I am deeply honored to represent family farmers and give them a seat at the table during important trade negotiations,” said Larew. “I would like to thank President Biden for his trust. As future trade agreements are negotiated and trade policy is considered, we must ensure that there are fair markets and opportunities for farmers and ranchers.”

The Committee includes up to 45 members recommended by the U.S. Trade Representative who are appointed by the President and have expertise in general trade, investment, and development issues, including representatives of non-federal governments, labor, industry, agriculture, small business, service industries, retailers, nongovernmental environmental and conservation organizations, and consumer interests.

The ACTPN is an advisory committee established to provide overall policy advice to the United States Trade Representative on matters arising in connection with the development, implementation, and administration of the trade policy of the United States including negotiating objectives and bargaining positions before entering into trade agreements.
