North American state and provincial agriculture officials gathered this week for the hybrid 30th annual Tri-National Agricultural Accord.

NASDA President and New York State Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets Richard A. Ball led the U.S. Delegation for the conference.

“This year, we celebrate three decades of collaboration through the Tri-National Agricultural Accord,” said Ball. “By working together as a North American trade alliance, we have and will continue to expand the opportunities of current and future generations of agricultural producers. And there’s no doubt state and provincial governments play an essential role in this success.”

In addition to joint statements on the bilateral meetings with Canada and Mexico, the three countries held productive sessions on combatting the threat of African Swine Fever, improving global climate resiliency through agricultural trade and the importance of cyber security within the food supply chain.
