US senators worried US-EU trade talks may not address agriculture
US trade officials have said they are looking for progress from the EU on agriculture barriers before talks begin.
That is believed to be one of the main reasons that a high-level US-EU working group report on the expected negotiations that was due in December still has not been released.
"I know there is a lot of interest in whether we will decide with our EU colleagues to launch trade negotiations," said Andrea Mead, a spokeswoman for the US Trade Representative's office. "Our work in that regard is ongoing. We want to take the time to get the substance right so that any agreement we might pursue would maximize job-supporting economic opportunities."
