The chief agricultural negotiator for the U.S. Trade Representative gave an update on the phase one agreement with China, and talked about what he believes are the major trade accomplishments of the Trump administration for the nation’s farmers and ranchers during an appearance at the 2020 Agribusiness Council of Kansas City Ag Outlook Forum on Monday.
“How many of you have ever read the agricultural section of the China Phase One agreement?” Ambassador Gregg Doud asked the live and virtual audience for the event. “What you will see if you ever do read it is that there are some 57 different structural changes that (both countries) agreed to make…I’m here to report to you today – 50 of those are done.”
