USMEF Encouraged by China's Return to the Negotiating Table with US During the G-20 SummitMon, 03 Dec 2018 11:22:41 CST
At the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) was signed and the White House announced that the U.S. and China will enter negotiations on several key trade issues, including agricultural trade.
U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) President and CEO Dan Halstrom issued the following statement:
"USMEF supports the Trump administrationís efforts to finalize the USMCA and to continue seeking resolution of the metal tariffs dispute with Mexico and Canada, which resulted in retaliatory duties on U.S. pork and beef. U.S. meat exports have also become entangled in trade disputes with China, so it is encouraging to see the U.S. and China return to the negotiating table. Global demand for U.S. red meat is very strong, but exports cannot reach their full potential until the retaliatory duties imposed by Mexico, China and Canada are removed."
