USGA CEO comments on President Trump’s Mexican imports tariffs

June 2, 2019 |

In Washington, D.C., U.S. Grains Council President and CEO Tom Sleight issued a statement on President Trump’s tariffs on Mexican imports, and said, “At such a critical time for U.S. farmers, new talk of tariffs on Mexican products challenges the complex relationship we have with the top international buyer of U.S. grains and related products. We agree continued negotiations are the correct path to ensure stability in our markets, particularly as South American corn becomes a viable option for Mexican customers. As this political and market situation develops, we will remain in close touch with our stakeholders here at home and in Mexico to help maintain the stability of our longstanding partnership.”
