WASHINGTON — The Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade (APAC) will by reestablished by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Department said this week. Six Agricultural Technical Advisory Committees for Trade (ATACs) also will be reestablished. Created by Congress in 1974, the committees are meant to help ensure that "U.S. trade policy and negotiation objectives reflect U.S. commercial and economic interests," the U.S.D.A. said. One ATAC focuses on grain, feed and oilseeds, another covers processed foods and a third deals with sweeteners and sweetener products. The U.S.D.A. is accepting nominations to the committees.
