Trump signs USMCA into law, move lauded by National Potato Council

The National Potato Council cheered the Jan. 29 signing of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) trade pact into law by President Trump.

The agreement is expected to stabilize the U.S. potato export markets of Canada and Mexico by both eliminating the threat of retaliatory tariffs and precluding the loss of tariff benefits previously provided by NAFTA.

“The National Potato Council welcomes today’s signing of the USMCA trade agreement — one of the most significant trade pacts in decades — and thanks President Trump for his support of the U.S.-Japan Agreement on Agricultural Trade and the U.S.-China Phase One Agreement earlier this year,” said Britt Raybould, President, National Potato Council.

Canada is the second largest export market for U.S. potatoes with over $300 million in sales annually.
