The National Turkey Federation (NTF) released the following statement today on the preliminary U.S.-Mexico Trade Agreement announced by the White House and U.S. Trade Representative:

“NTF applauds the progress announced today on a trade deal with Mexico. Stabilizing the trade relationship with the turkey industry’s largest export customer is of vital importance to our members.  NTF is also encouraged by the reported agreement to strengthen disciplines for science-based SPS (sanitary and phytosanitary) measures, which has long been sought by the turkey industry. Mexico and the U.S. poultry industry have a long, robust history of trade. We look forward to continuing to build this partnership.”
