Urging Trade Caution: U.S. soybean farmers push for food exclusion in trade war talks

U.S. farmers, led by the American Soybean Association, are urging policymakers to avoid dragging food into escalating trade tensions with China.

These concerns are coming up as President Biden imposed tariffs on Chinese goods from syringes to batteries, which they say could potentially worsen U.S. agriculture exports to China. Beijing has vowed retaliation, calling it “bullying.”

Despite past setbacks, The Agricultural Group reports they are actively engaging with Chinese buyers to bolster the trade relationship.
