Cargill Statement: U.S.-Mexico Agreements on Sugar Trade

June 06, 2017

Cargill applauds the Trump Administration for its decision to maintain open sweetener trade between the United States and Mexico. This will bring benefits across many sectors of the U.S. economy and, in particular, will support agriculture and protect the jobs that help rural America prosper.

The decision by the Department of Commerce is consistent with the Trump Administration’s stated commitment to U.S. workers and growing the economy. The decision also maintains a strong and productive trade relationship with Mexico, which is vital to successfully modernize NAFTA.
