NEW YORK -- India has agreed to let in imports of American pork and pork products, ending a long-standing ban and continuing a wave of increased agricultural market access between the two Quad partners.

"This new opportunity marks the culmination of nearly two decades of work to gain market access for U.S. pork to India -- and it signals positive movement in U.S.-India trade relations," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a news release from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
