Dispute Panel 'Important Next Step' to Return to Science-Based Trade with Mexico
The following statement may be attributed to Nancy Travis, vice president of international affairs, BIO.
“The Biotechnology Innovation Organization supports today’s action by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to request formation of a dispute resolution panel under the U.S. – Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA) concerning Mexico’s harmful ban on biotech corn. We thank USTR for moving forward expeditiously with this important next step toward returning trade with Mexico to the science-based trade conditions to which North American trade partners agreed in the USMCA.
“Today’s action is necessary to ensure food security for Mexico’s consumers and supports access to safe, sustainable agricultural technologies for North American farmers.”
