Apr 30, 2019

The U.S. International Trade Commission recently reported that the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) would increase U.S. dairy exports by more than $277 million. “With this good news in hand, we’ve stepped up our advocacy efforts, calling for swift passage of the USMCA by Congress,” said Michael Dykes, D.V.M., president and CEO of IDFA, in his April column for Cheese Market News.

He added that IDFA is encouraging the Trump administration to maintain a swift pace on all trade issues, including outstanding talks with China, Japan and the European Union, “because the stakes are so high for U.S. dairy.”
