In brief: Mexico

* At an agricultural sector forum which took place at the Universidad Autónoma de Tabasco, Bosco de la Vega, the president of Mexico’s national agricultural council (CNA), called for the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to be approved without further delay. The UMSCA, which is to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta), was signed in November 2018 and is awaiting approval by the participating countries’ congresses before it can be implemented. “After so much effort it’s in our best interests that the agreement’s approval goes through as soon as possible”, De la Vega said. He also highlighted the approaching of 7 May, which will mark the end of a 90-day notice period on US withdrawal from the 2013 US-Mexico tomato agreement, re-opening a US anti-dumping investigation into Mexican tomato exporters.
