US picks trade fight with Indonesia

“The Obama Administration is committed to protecting the rights of our growers, farmers, ranchers and processors to compete on a level playing field. We will continue to make clear to our trading partners that we will fight to support each job here at home affected by unfair restrictions abroad.”

Indonesia is one of the United States's top trading partners, with more than $26 billion worth of goods exchanged in 2011. The trade balance is sharply in Indonesia's favor.
