The U.S. and Mexico have reached, in principal, an agreement to a new North American Free Trade Agreement framework. President Donald Trump says the new agreement will benefit U.S. agriculture in various regards, including Mexico’s promise to immediately start purchasing foreign product. “They’re going to work on that very hard,” says Trump. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue praised the agreement, saying it specially addresses agricultural biotechnology to keep up with 21st Century innovations. “It also reduces trade distorting policies, increases transparency and ensures non-discriminatory treatment in the grading of U.S. agricultural products.” There is a 90-day window between submission of the agreement to Congress and formal signing in late November. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer says submission of a letter to Congress is set to begin Friday. Attention now turns to the third party of NAFTA, Canada, who is expected to resume trade negotiations with the U.S. and Mexico.
