U.S. Senate Agriculture Chairman Roberts Calls For Preserving & Modernizing NAFTA

U.S. Senate Committee On Agricultural, Nutrition & Forestry Chairman Pat Roberts: “There Is A Sweet Spot [For Modernizing NAFTA].” “Now, every trade agreement I have ever been associated with has [been] both criticized and oversold.  But there is a sweet spot.  But since 1994, when NAFTA went into force, the value of U.S. agricultural exports to Canada has increased by 265 percent, nobody predicted that, and to Mexico by 289 percent.  It just makes sense to take a look at agreements like NAFTA to make sure they are functioning as they should be over two decades later.” (Committee On Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry, U.S. Senate, Hearing, 4/24/18)
