From Mexico to the Middle East, people around the world enjoy dairy products exported from the U.S. In the latest episode of The Dairy Download, we speak with Alexis Taylor, USDA under secretary for trade and foreign affairs, about her role in keeping the U.S. a go-to for international dairy business.

In an in-depth interview, Under Secretary Taylor tells our hosts more about the current global trade landscape. How are U.S. officials working to rectify issues with the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement? What steps are being taken to establish stronger trade ties with India? And what can we expect from the Biden Administration in the coming months when it comes to trade policy?

We discuss those topics and more.
