As NAFTA Negotiation Round Wraps Up in Montreal Trump's Total Withdrawal Still a Potential Threat

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 15:06:21 CST

As NAFTA Negotiation Round Wraps Up in Montreal Trump's Total Withdrawal Still a Potential Threat Brian Kuehl, Executive Director of Farmers for Free Trade, the bipartisan campaign to restore support for agricultural trade today released the following statement on completion of the sixth round of NAFTA negotiations in Montreal. Farmers for Free Trade brought farmers from Texas and Kansas to the negotiating round in Montreal to discuss the importance of NAFTA with members of Congress and the media.


ďUncertainty in NAFTA negotiations is creating uncertainty for American farmers. As we head into planting season, farmers need the confidence that exports to Americaís two most important agricultural export markets will remain viable. While itís heartening to know that progress was made and compromises were proposed in Montreal, itís also clear that these negotiations could last longer than anticipated.



"The potential for NAFTA withdrawal to now remain an option into 2019 is a major concern. Itís time to remove the cloud of withdrawal so that farmers and ranchers have the certainty they deserve while NAFTA is being modernized.ď
