European Union

In fiscal 2014, U.S. exports of food and farm products to the European Union were valued at $12.7 billion, making it our fifth-largest agricultural export market. The top U.S. agricultural exports to the EU were tree nuts and soybeans.

In June 2013, the United States and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive negotiation, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP), to liberalize bilateral trade. A successful negotiation will yield significant opportunities for U.S. agriculture and promote international competitiveness, jobs and economic growth.
