Secretary Perdue Urges USMCA Ratification

Secretary Perdue Urges USMCA Ratification

Posted: Updated:

As the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement continues to sit unratified in the Capitol, Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue and lawmakers call for quick action in September. During a visit to Pennsylvania, Secretary Perdue says the stalling of the USMCA's ratification may send the wrong message and Pennsylvania Lawmakers are in line with that thinking. 

As more markets emerge Perdue says he'd like to see additional deals with countries like Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and more. Perdue says the next step should be diversifying what size markets the U.S. is making deals with. Japan, Korea, and Morocco are also on the USDA Chief's trade agreement wish list.

    A low-key hurricane season could offer a much-needed break to producers recovering from last year's storms. According to the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration, each season averages 12 storms. So far, one weaker hurricane and another tropical storm have formed and that’s a decade low. Despite a slow start, other forecasters predict a late-season surge. Hurricane season runs through November.
