WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Chamber’s Senior Vice President for International Policy John Murphy issued the following statement today in response to Taiwan’s announcement to lift import restrictions on U.S. beef and pork:

“We welcome Taiwan’s announcement to lift import restrictions on U.S. beef and pork. These barriers to trade have been a longstanding concern for U.S. exporters, and their removal is an important step.

“With a population under 24 million, Taiwan is the 10th largest U.S. trading partner. The lifting of these restrictions will provide U.S. farmers and ranchers much needed opportunities and is a victory for supporters of trade liberalization in both economies.”
