U.S.-Mexico sugar settlement paves way to NAFTA renegotiation

June 6, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the settlement reached by the U.S. and Mexico over Mexico’s illegally dumping of sugar on U.S. markets:

“We are grateful that Commerce Secretary Ross took Mexico’s sugar dumping on U.S. markets seriously as a precursor to the upcoming NAFTA renegotiations. The proof on whether this settlement is a success will be in if Mexico now complies with the agreement, and if the U.S. government follows through on its threat to immediately and aggressively impose further sanctions should they fail to do so. As the administration moves forward with the hard work of renegotiating NAFTA, Americans for Limited Government will be steadfast in our commitment to a future trade environment that reflects overall U.S. economic interests.”
