FARMERS FOR FREE TRADE ISSUES STATEMENT ON 90-DAY DUTY DEFERRAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Source: Farmers for Free Trade news release

Washington - Yesterday, Farmers for Free Trade Co-Executive Director Brian Kuehl released the following statement on the Administration's 90-day duty deferral announcement.

"This is a positive step for struggling small businesses and a welcome admission that tariffs are paid by Americans, not other countries. However, much more needs to be done.

As the rural economic crisis deepens, it's disappointing that American farmers, whose industry is reliant on exports, continue to be hamstrung by retaliatory tariffs brought about by the trade war. An instant shot in arm would be to immediately and permanently end the tariffs on both imports and exports.

"The solution to providing farmers with long-term, stable market access again begins with ending the trade war now. Now more that ever our farmers, small businesses and rural communities across America need clarity, certainty and confidence in order to successfully navigate the ever-changing trade and COVID landscape."
