NGFA commends removal of tariffs

NGFA commends removal of tariffs

(Posted on 20/05/19)

The United States National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) has commended the Trump administration and trade negotiators from the United States, Mexico and Canada for successfully completing talks that will lead to the removal of U.S. Section 232 tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from the two countries, as well as Canada and Mexico’s counter-tariffs imposed on U.S. agricultural and other products. 

“This is an extremely important development that should spur expeditious ratification of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade accord in all three countries,” said NGFA President and Chief Executive Officer Randy Gordon.  “As an organization that is a strong and unconditional supporter of USMCA, we urge the administration to submit enabling legislation, and Congress to approve, USMCA on a bipartisan basis. In the current trade environment, in particular, U.S. agriculture desperately needs the certainty and market access USMCA will provide.”

The National Grain and Feed Association represents and provides services for grain, feed and related commercial businesses. Consisting of more than 1,000 companies, NGFA members handle more than 70 percent of all U.S. grains and oilseeds utilized in domestic and export markets. NGFA is focused on enhancing the growth and economic performance of U.S. agriculture.
