Briefing paper

The United States is a major producer and the largest exporter of agricultural commodities. Because of the size of the U.S agriculture sector, changes in production, trade and policy can affect international markets. This has been demonstrated by the China-U.S trade dispute, which has caused a diversion in exports for Australia and other countries. This Insights report compares the Australian and U.S agricultural sectors, and briefly profiles U.S agricultural policy, to highlight Australia’s exposure to shifts in the global market resulting from the trade war.
