Mexico and USA to Conclude Meeting on Food and Agriculture

When there is less than about 20 days to begin the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Mexico and the United States will end today the second high-level meeting on food and agriculture in Merida, Yucatan.
This important meeting is presided over by Mexican and US Secretaries of Agriculture Jose Calzada and Sonny Perdue, respectively.
Both high-ranking officials will attend a panel discussion with domestic producers and US businessmen.
According to the information provided by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), this gathering is aimed at analyzing some actions to strengthen bilateral trade through a fair and open exchange.
Mexican letters of presentation are mainly related to the exports of beer, avocado, tomato, vegetables, peppers, tequila, strawberries, cattle, asparagus and sugar cane, totaling $12,405 million USD in sales to USA during the first five months of 2017.
The United States holds in its portfolio the exports of yellow corn, soybeans, pork ham, wheat and powdered milk, valued at $7,531 million USD.
The food-farming trade balance shows a 60,7-percent surplus in favor of Mexico, a situation that US President Donald Trump has promised to revert however possible.
The state of Georgia hosted the first bilateral meeting in June.
