The following statement can be attributed to Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Joe Bragger:
“Wisconsin Farm Bureau would like to thank President Trump for signing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement today.
This agreement is welcome news for many in agriculture and manufacturing who have worked to solidify relationships between our North American trading partners.
Wisconsin farmers face many challenges and we don’t anticipate this agreement will fix all these hardships, but it is a step in the right direction to help us overcome some of the obstacles we face.
Canada must still approve the agreement, which we hope to see over the next few months. The USMCA will take effect 90 days after all three countries approve it.
Signing the USMCA is just one of many trade victories during the past several months including the China Phase 1 Agreement and the U.S. – Japan Trade Agreement.”
