Import tariffs on Australian beef set to fall

The United States has pulled out of the original Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, and while some see that as a problem, for farmers in Australia it is an opportunity.

    The revised Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal will be signed in Chile this week.

    The United States pulled out of the original deal and some see that as a problem. The 12-nation trade deal was a linchpin of former President Barack Obama's Asia policy.

    For farmers in Australia, the absence of the US provides an opportunity.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Premer.
