US corn, grain groups still like Trans-Pacific Partnership

An article in Southeast Farm Press (November 6, 2015) titled “US corn, grain groups still like Trans-Pacific Partnership” (http://southeastfarmpress.com/grains/us-corn-grain-groups-still-trans-pacific-partnership) describes the benefits that the TPP provides to the agricultural industry. The National Corn Growers Association celebrates the commercial agreement, since it will provide farmers and ranchers greater access to the Asia-Pacific region that represents 40% of the world’s economy. The TPP agreement will increase U.S. agricultural exports, which besides increasing farm incomes also generates economic development in rural communities. What other industries will perceive the greatest benefits of the TPP agreement? Which economic sectors will face a downturn due to this commercial deal?
