BIO Comments on Objectives for U.S. Japan Trade Agreement

BIO supports the U.S. Trade Representative’s (USTR) negotiations with the Government of Japan as an opportunity to grow U.S. exports and create U.S. jobs. We would strongly urge the U.S. government to build on the recent U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement and that the agreement comprehensively addresses the biotechnology sector as an engine for growth for both economies, and in particular to ensure that Japanese health system promotes rather than hinders innovation and access to new medicines.
