IDFA recognizes the importance of trade to the future of the dairy industry, and getting creative about maximizing trade opportunities is going to be critical moving forward. At the same time, for the first time in recent history, there is real consideration being given to whether multilateral agreements and organizations (e.g. the WTO) or bilateral trade agreements are better tools for unlocking the most potential for U.S. products globally, and what the U.S. should do about it. These experts discussed that fundamental debate by looking through the lens of both U.S. and other regions’ policy tools and approaches to global competitiveness in dairy products.
