(Measure passed Senate, amended)

Expresses the sense of the Congress that the President should take action to encourage increasing the processed product share of farm exports, including but not limited to: (1) urging U.S. negotiators to try to include a quantity of value-added processed farm products in grain agreements with the Soviet Union or other nonmarket economy countries; (2) seeking elimination of unfair trade practices by foreign competitors by pursuing international trade negotiations; and (3) using authorities of the Commodity Credit Corporation and the Export-Import Bank to ensure that credit arrangements for farm exports and farm product exports are on terms equal to those offered by other countries.
