U.S. Trade Representative Nominee Katherine Tai told the Senate Finance Committee if she is confirmed, a top priority will be implementing and enforcing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, along with addressing China’s unfair trade practices. South Dakota Senator John Thune asked Tai about her stance on trade policies that work for agriculture. “For the enforcement side on the USMCA I talked about in my opening statement. It’s about caring and nurturing the agreements we have to make sure they deliver on the promises that have been made and that also goes for the other trade agreements we have under our belt. I want to make clear that’s a priority and the phase one deal with China.”
