USMCA Agreement a Win for US Chicken Producers; NCC Urges Swift Passage

December 10, 2019

Washington, D.C. – The National Chicken Council (NCC) today issued the following statement after the announced agreement on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA):
 
“USMCA will maintain and improve market access for U.S. chicken in our top two markets in terms of value, Mexico and Canada,” said NCC President Mike Brown. “It will also positively impact both the U.S. agriculture sector and the broader national economy.

“On behalf of America’s chicken producers, I want to thank President Trump for his leadership and for the tireless work of the administration, including Agriculture Secretary Perdue and U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer. After a year of negotiations, the time to act is now. We encourage swift Congressional consideration and passage of USMCA before Christmas.”
