Statement to be attributed to Ohio Farm Bureau president Frank Burkett III upon approval of the United States-Canada-Mexico-Agreement by the U.S. House of Representatives.
“USMCA solidifies the strong trade relationship that the U.S. has built with Mexico and Canada, especially when it comes to agricultural commodities. We appreciate President Trump and the U.S. House for their efforts in letting the world know that the U.S. is open for business and for giving farmers more market certainty they need to help them succeed. We now ask that the U.S. Senate move forward quickly on the finalization of USMCA.”
