Peterson Statement on Renegotiated NAFTA

 

October 2, 2018



WASHINGTON (October 1, 2018) – Following the announcement of a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement this week, House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson of Minnesota issued the following statement:

“I am pleased to see the NAFTA renegotiation take one step closer to a possible conclusion, and I look forward to reviewing the agreement in full as Congress takes up its passage. Dairy and poultry are huge concerns for me, and I am encouraged with the access and provisions it appears we’ve secured in this agreement. While this agreement does not end Canada’s supply management policies, this agreement includes provisions that will help dairy farmers in Minnesota and nationwide with less trade distorting exports during the current downturn in the farm economy. I hope the administration will use the momentum from this NAFTA deal to make progress in bringing the trade war with China to a productive end.”
