National Cattlemen's Beef Assoc. Unsettled by China's inclusion of Beef as Possible Target for Tariffs

Wed, 04 Apr 2018 12:04:51 CDT

National Cattlemen's Beef Assoc. Unsettled by China's inclusion of Beef as Possible Target for Tariffs Kent Bacus, Director of International Trade and Market Access for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, today issued the following statement regarding the announcement that China has included American-produced beef on a list of proposed retaliatory tariffs:



“It is unsettling to see American-produced beef listed as a target for retaliation. Sadly, we are not surprised, as this is an inevitable outcome of any trade war. This is a battle between two governments, and the unfortunate casualties will be America’s cattlemen and women and our consumers in China. The Trump Administration has until the end of May to resolve this issue. We believe in trade enforcement, but endless retaliation is not a good path forward for either side.”
