U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, released the statement below after a trade dispute panel established under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) rejected a complaint that Canada has overly restricted U.S. dairy imports and violated USMCA obligations.
“This decision fails to align with key principles of our trade agreement with Canada and puts Minnesota dairy producers at a disadvantage. We must hold our trade partners accountable and ensure the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement is enforced fairly. I will continue working to reduce trade barriers and ensure our dairy exporters have fair access to the Canadian market.”
