Ag groups push to stay on course with Phase One deal

Ag groups are pushing U.S. Trade Rep Katherine Tai to stay on course with the Phase One trade deal.

Some top names in the industry sent her a letter, including National Milk Producers Federation, the American Soybean Association, and National Corn Growers Association.

They stressed the importance of the deal and access to the Chinese market. They include information compiled by the U.S. Food and Ag Dialogue for Trade, which consists of more than 200 companies.

They write, “The implementation of this agreement comes at a key moment. China represents unprecedented export opportunities for America’s farmers, ranchers, food industry workers, food processors, manufacturers, and processors... The U.S.-China Phase One Trade Agreement acts as a foundation for the prosperity of the U.S. food and agriculture sector.”
