    By USDEC staff June 10, 2019

    Resolution of tariff issues helps pave way for Congress to ratify trade agreement critical for U.S. dairy exports to Mexico, Canada.

    Vilsack41-6The U.S. Dairy Export Council, the National Milk Producers Federation and the International Dairy Foods Association issued a joint letter today to members of Congress urging passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

    In a news release announcing the letter, USDEC President and CEO Tom Vilsack made this statement: 

    “It is time for Congress to swiftly pursue a USMCA vote by working closely with the Administration to resolve outstanding concerns and then quickly ratify this agreement to bring USMCA across the finish line. The successful resolution of the Section 232 retaliatory tariffs helped pave the way for this critical trade agreement; while we work together to secure its passage Congress must also stand against the imposition of any additional tariffs that could jeopardize forward progress.”
