Washington, D.C. - Acting Deputy USTR Cutler and Ambassador Hiroshi Oe of Japan completed two days of negotiations on TPP market access issues, focusing on the treatment of agricultural products.  Limited progress was made so far this week and significant gaps remain. Working-level meetings will continue through Friday.  Cutler and Oe agreed to continue discussions on these issues in an effort  to narrow the gaps in the weeks ahead.  Dates for subsequent discussions will be set through diplomatic channels.
