US Lawmakers Urge Biden to Enforce USMCA Compliance on Biotech
Wednesday, 2021/12/08 | 07:48:39

 

A group of 70 lawmakers in the US led by Adrian Smith and Jim Costa is calling for the Biden Administration to seek assurance from the Mexican government that the country will abide by the biotech provisions indicated in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Biotech application approvals have been halted in Mexico since 2018 and Mexican President López Obrador has announced the intent to phase out certain biotech products including biotech corn for human consumption by 2024.

 

"This decree, which is not based in science, is particularly concerning because it signals the potential rejection of currently pending permit approvals and opens the door to revocation of existing biotech authorizations," the legislators wrote in the letter.

 

According to Smith, Mexico is a critical market for Nebraska corn and soybean products. As an important trading partner, Mexico must reaffirm its commitment to the USMCA biotech provisions to support the Nebraska farmers.

 

Read more from The Fence Post. The letter to Biden is posted on the website of Congressman Adrian Smith.
