NAT'L COTTON COUNCIL THANKS PRESIDENT FOR STEPS TO ADVANCE USMCA APPROVAL
Source: Nat'l Cotton Council news release

The National Cotton Council (NCC) commends President Trump and his Administration for the recent outcome of negotiations with Mexico and Canada to remove the U.S. Section 232 tariffs and the corresponding retaliatory tariffs.

"While cotton and cotton textile products have not been subject to retaliatory tariffs in these key markets, this action represents one of the necessary and significant steps to create a pathway for Congressional approval of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) this year," NCC Chairman Mike Tate said. "The cotton industry appreciates the focus by President Trump and the Administration to remove the tariffs."

The Alabama cotton producer noted that the NCC will continue to help educate Members of Congress "on the importance of timely USMCA approval to restore certainty in the North American market, which represents significant export market share for both U.S. cotton and cotton textile products."
