The article reflects on how the U.S. races for trade. It states that the U.S. is negotiating new free trade agreements and focusing on approving agreements already negotiated with Colombia and South Korea. Thus, it shows that the implementation of trade agreements have prompted the growth of agricultural trade exports in the U.S. It suggests U.S. officials to seek arrangement with strategic trade partners and focus on commercially market access in the World Trade Organization (WTO).
