SEC'Y PERDUE SAYS LAST WEEK'S TALKS WITH CHINA PRODUCTIVE FOR AG
Agri-Pulse reports:

Negotiators for China and the Trump administration are continuing negotiations this week as President Donald Trump's March 1 looms. The president said in a weekend tweet that "big progress" is being made in the talks. And on Monday, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said some of that headway is in the negotiations to get China to lift its barriers to U.S. ag exports.

"I think we can make real progress with the Chinese on ag issues, but it has to be ... real reform with an enforceability component," Perdue told reporters.

USDA Trade Undersecretary Ted McKinney and USTR Chief Agricultural Negotiator Gregg Doud are representing the interests of the U.S. farm sector in this week's talks.

Perdue said U.S. and Chinese negotiators continue to wrangle with a wide variety of barriers that the U.S. would like to see removed, but highlighted China's opaque and much criticized biotech trait approval system. "I think we're making progress on the biotech issues," Perdue said.
