Beef producers across Saskatchewan are asking Ottawa to sign the TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.
Stock Growers President Shane Jahnke, said signing the TPP has the potential to expand Canadian beef exports by 200-million dollars.
By signing the TPP, Jahnke said Canada will see beef tariffs in Japan drop to 27 percent, the amount now paid by Australia, a key competitor in the region.
He added Canada would gain an 11 percent tariff advantage over U.S. beef by signing the TPP.
Talks are scheduled for later this month.
