U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman will travel to Des Moines, Iowa to showcase the major contributions that Iowa makes to the United States economy through exporting. Ambassador Froman will meet with farmers, ranchers, small business owners, and elected officials to discuss how Iowa stands to gain from the current U.S. trade agenda, especially through unprecedented trade deals that are being negotiated with countries in the Asia-Pacific and the European Union.  Iowa is the second-largest agricultural exporter in the United States.  President Obama’s trade agenda will break down barriers to Iowa’s top 4 export markets: Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Germany.
