During the meeting Gary will present before the TWG on the business realities of trading grain and the impacts that non-tariff barriers like missing or non-harmonized minimum residue limits (MRLs) can pose. The NAFTA TWG on Pesticides is mulitalteral working group comprised of the governments of Mexico, Canada and the United States that seeks to address pesticide issues that arise from the liberalization of trade between the three countries under the NAFTA agreement.
