Cargill submits testimony on proposed tariff impacts

May 17, 2018

Last week, Cargill provided comments on the U.S. Trade Representative’s (USTR) proposed 301 tariffs and their likely impact on the U.S.-China relationship and the U.S. food and agricultural sector.

Cargill continues to urge both countries to engage in constructive trade negotiations to address trade concerns with each other in a time-bound manner. Through productive dialogue and negotiation, we believe both countries can achieve meaningful improvements in the U.S.-China trade and investment relationship while building even stronger US-China economic ties.

The two countries are closely linked, with China being the second largest market for US food and agriculture exports.
