U.S. Grains Council Statement On U.S.-Mexico Trade Announcement

Calls agreement a major step forward in the relationship with Mexico

Mexico 1460659 1280

A statement from U.S. Grains Council President and CEO Tom Sleight:

"We are grateful for news today that the United States and Mexico have reached an agreement that will keep NAFTA modernization efforts moving. This agreement is a major step forward for our relationship with Mexico and is a result of hard work over the last year to closely examine our vital partnership.

"Mexico is extremely important to every sector we represent. Yet, so too is Canada, our second largest ethanol market and a top ten corn market. We hope the agreement today opens the door for Canada's reengagement, and we continue to oppose withdrawal from the existing NAFTA under any circumstances except the adoption of a new, beneficial and trilateral pact.

"We look forward to analyzing the provisions the United States and Mexico announced today and continued work toward the goal of an improved trilateral agreement."
