Doug Burgum on Free Trade

 

 


North American trade deal good for farmers, ranchers

Agriculture can be a volatile industry, so we need to do our best to ensure that our ag producers have as much access as possible to world markets. The USMCA reduces tariff and non-tariff barriers for agricultural markets and increases fairness in the Canadian wheat grading system, improving our ability to work with Canada and Mexico. This increased market access broadens the customer base for our farmers and ranchers, thereby decreasing market volatility.

Supports USMCA trade agreement to replace NAFTA

The USMCA is a new trade pact among the United States, Mexico and Canada, intended as a stronger and modernized replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Gov. Doug Burgum (R-ND): "We're encouraged to hear that negotiators have reached consensus to update our trilateral trade agreement with Canada and Mexico. . We're grateful to the administration for its continued efforts to expeditiously negotiate free and fair trade agreements that benefit American producers and consumers."

Trade war with China, & tariffs, hurting domestic farmers

These proposed tariffs are particularly concerning for North Dakotans considering China is our fourth-largest export market and a major buyer of our agricultural products, including our No. 1 export market for soybeans. Disrupting that trade relationship puts our farmers at a disadvantage, and we urge the administration to negotiate a deal that benefits U.S. producers and blocks these proposed retaliatory tariffs from taking effect.
