AFBF’s Duvall, Mexico leaders gather for wide-ranging ag discussions
American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall has met with two of Mexico’s top leaders for a “wide-ranging” discussion on issues affecting American agriculture.
Duvall met Wednesday with Tatiana Clouthier Mexico’s Secretary of the Economy, and Esteban Moctezuma Barragón, Mexico’s Ambassador to the U.S., to discuss a variety of trade matters, the use of technology to advance agriculture and issues along the border.
Duvall says the group reiterated their commitment to the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, but says he’s disappointed with Mexico’s decision to limit the use of technology in food and the issues farmers and ranchers are facing along the border.
Duvall says the delegation conveyed concerns about origin labeling of meat and urged an approach that honors the U.S.’s World Trade Organization commitments.
