Ag Coalition Formed to Support NAFTA

Dan Industry News Release, Trade

coalitionA new coalition of agriculture groups is focusing on the importance of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

More than 30 organizations across the agriculture sector announced the formation of Americans for Farmers & Families, noting that food and agriculture supports 43 million U.S. jobs and depends on trade with Canada and Mexico.

The group was formed to “ensure” President Trump and Congressional leaders understand the “importance of preserving and modernizing” NAFTA to America’s agricultural economy. As part of the effort, the coalition will be launching an educational campaign to highlight the positive impact of NAFTA and lay the groundwork for an updated trade agreement that “preserves America’s strong economic standing for decades to come.”

Coalition members include the American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture and many various commodity groups.
