KY Ag Commissioner, Dr. Ryan Quarles on the 29-year commitment to improving North American trade

Ag leaders sign the 2020 Tri-National Ag Accord, representing a 29-year commitment to improve trade with our North American neighbors.

Kentucky Ag Commissioner and NASDA president, Dr. Ryan Quarles speaks with RFD-TV News on the value of this accord for agriculture, the main topics of the signing, and how these changes will make trade better in the future.

According to Dr. Quarles, “What this does is, it allows all the state and provincial ag commissioners, secretaries, and directors to review the trade status among the most powerful trading block in the world, the North American continent, and with the new USMCA being implemented just a couple months ago, we have a lot of momentum for agriculture. We’re going to continue to work with our counterparts both in Mexico and Canada to make sure that agriculture shines and that we all benefit from this new trade agreement.”
