Farmers for Free Trade Statement on Phase One U.S.-China Deal Signing

Wed, 15 Jan 2020 11:46:47 CST

Farmers for Free Trade Statement on Phase One U.S.-China Deal Signing Today, Farmers for Free Trade spokesperson and 4th-Generation Montana wheat farmer, Michelle Erickson-Jones released the following statement after the Phase One U.S-China deal was signed.

"While Phase One makes incremental progress, it remains to be seen whether it will deliver any meaningful relief for farmers like me. This deal does not end retaliatory tariffs on American farm exports, makes American farmers increasingly reliant on Chinese state-controlled purchases and doesnít address the big structural changes the trade war was predicated on achieving. The promises of lofty purchases are encouraging but farmers like me will believe it when we see it.

"In the months ahead, we will be closely scrutinizing the purchase promises in this agreement. We will see whether Phase One takes steps to dig out from the hole the trade war created or whether like previous ag purchase promises it is all talk. In the meantime, the Administration should waste no time in returning to the negotiating table and reaching an agreement that ends the trade war for good."
