On January 15 NAEGA, along with the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA), submitted joint comments to the U.S. Trade Representative regarding upcoming negotiations of a U.S.-U.K. trade agreement. In the comments, NAEGA and NGFA state that they look forward to a successful USTR negotiation with the UK that encompasses policies and measures that further increase U.S. agriculture’s contributions to the U.S. economy. A successful negotiation will include ambitious and comprehensive access for U.S. agricultural products and is followed with proper implementation and enforcement. This includes agreement on bilateral issues including non-tariff barriers, biotechnology and new plant breeding innovations and sustainability.
