The two sides had earlier said that they expected to sign the deal at the United Nations General Assembly in New York this month. By sending formal notification to Congress, Mr. Trump can now move forward with signing that agreement. The congressional letter didn’t spell out the terms of the deal.

The U.S. and Japan have kept the scope of the talks limited to avoid the need for Congress to vote on the deal. In the letter, the Trump administration left open the possibility of doing a “comprehensive trade agreement” in the future and said it would continue to collaborate with Congress on future negotiations.

The article goes on to state the following:

A deal in which Tokyo lowers its agricultural tariffs could allow U.S. farmers to better compete in Japan. American agricultural exporters have been disadvantaged in the Japanese market ever since Mr. Trump pulled out of the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership at the beginning of his presidency.
