January 16, 2020
WAYZATA, MN – Today, the United States Senate passed implementing legislation for the United States-Canada-Mexico Trade Agreement (USMCA). The United States House of Representatives passed the legislation last month. Now, the bill will be sent to the President of the United States, who is expected to sign the legislation into law. The following is a statement from Cargill.
“With strong, bipartisan agreement, the United States Congress has taken decisive action to secure mutual market access for farmers, manufacturers, and businesses across North America. Cargill and the farmers and customers we work with every day are grateful to members of Congress for their leadership and commitment to enacting this critical trade agreement.
“A broad coalition of people across all three countries made this progress possible. All of us – farmers, businesses, workers, and consumers alike – will benefit from the market certainty and economic opportunities USMCA will provide.
“We look forward to this trade agreement’s final approval by the President of the United States, and the economic growth it will surely deliver in the years to come.”
