Farm Bureau Urges New Chapter in China Trade as Officials Meet with Foreign Leaders This Week

Mon, 29 Jul 2019 12:08:19 CDT

Farm Bureau Urges New Chapter in China Trade as Officials Meet with Foreign Leaders This Week The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:



“All eyes will be on this week’s trade negotiations in China because reopening the door to one of the largest markets in the world is key to helping farmers get back on their feet.



“We wholly support the Administration’s efforts to stop unfair trade practices by China. Now, it’s time to write the next chapter in our trade relationship by eliminating tariff barriers.



“American agriculture can compete with anyone in the world on a level playing field. I hope this week’s talks create that opportunity.”



Background facts:



- From 2017 to 2018, U.S. agricultural exports to China fell more than 50 percent, dropping to $9.1 billion.

- In 2014, U.S. agricultural exports to China exceeded $24 billion.

- From 2000 to 2017, U.S. agricultural exports to China increased by 700%.
