The article focuses on the growing numbers of free trade agreements among U.S. competitors which puts the country's agricultural exporters to lose a share of the global market. It mentions that free trade agreements, like the ASEAN-China and ASEAN-Australia/New Zealand, are affecting the agricultural exports of the country. It cites that the free trade agreement (FTA) of Mercosur countries and Columbia has reduced the agricultural exports of the U.S. to Columbia due to preferential tariffs.
