Concern grows over trade relations with Mexico

USMCA Signing

Twenty-five ag groups have sent a letter to the Ag Secretary and U.S. Trade Rep on their concerns on trade with Mexico.

The letter includes the GM corn ban, obstacles for dairy, biotech approvals, meat market access, geographical indications, the potato ban, and front-of-pack labeling.

“Mexico is one of America’s most important food and agriculture trade partners... the U.S., Mexico, Canada Agreement (USMCA) promises to build upon those gains. Yet, the food and agriculture trade relationship with Mexico has declined markedly... We respectfully urge your attention to this important but quickly deteriorating trade relationship,” the letter read, according to AgDaily.

The American Farm Bureau has expressed their concern on the matter as well.
