The Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee (APAC) for Trade and the Agricultural Technical Advisory Committees (ATAC) for Trade advise the Secretary of Agriculture and the U.S. Trade Representative on the development and administration of U.S. trade policy. These Committees are intended to ensure that representative elements of the private sector have an opportunity to provide their views on trade and trade policy matters to the U.S. government. The Committees provide the formal mechanism through which the U.S. government may seek advice and information from the private sector. For information on APAC, please click here.
