Farmers and ranchers are ready to move forward on trade with our nearest neighbors, AFBF President Zippy Duvall said in a statement in response to President Donald Trump’s announcement on a trade deal with Mexico.
“Based on the gains both sides have seen with NAFTA, we expect this new ‘U.S.-Mexico Preliminary Agreement in Principle’ to build on that success for our farmers and ranchers. No trade deal is perfect, however. There is room for improvement, especially in provisions that affect U.S. fruit and vegetable growers, and we will continue to call for a resolution to those issues and a final deal that works for all of agriculture,” Duvall said.
