Senate Ag Committee Pushes Administration on Trade at Hearing
The U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing with trade leaders of the U.S. government to push them on finding agreement with key agriculture export markets. The Trump Administration’s ongoing trade disputes with key agriculture export markets like China and Mexico have hindered the flow of commodities in the global market and have depressed agricultural commodity prices. While talks continue between the U.S. and its trading partners, the agriculture community is pressing for an expeditious conclusion to the negotiations in order to regain market stability.
Today the Senate #Ag Committee held a hearing focusing on #Agriculture & #Trade. I heard a lot from Arkansas farmers on the subjects of fair trade & finding new markets during my recent #ARisAG #Farm Tour. WATCH my questions to our witnesses from @USTradeRep & @USDA. pic.twitter.com/M4NPNkzOP5
