Trade deputy keeps spotlight on Canadian dairy quotas
A U.S. trade official again emphasized the importance of Canada fully meeting its USMCA commitments. During a virtual meeting with U.S., Mexican, and Canadian trade representatives Wednesday, Deputy United States Trade Representative Jayme White expressed concern about Canada’s allocation of dairy tariff-rate quotas, which were recently ruled unfair to the U.S.
White also brought up concerns about home-shopping, Canada’s proposed digital service tax, and bilateral steel trade. The trade deputies from all three countries agreed to maintain an open line of communication.
