On Thursday, October 15th, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor participated in a virtual stakeholder roundtable discussion on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on trade. The roundtable was hosted by the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture ahead of their 29th Annual Tri-National Agricultural Accord, and also included participants from:

  • National Milk Producers Federation
  • Merck Animal Health
  • CropLife America
  • Farm Credit Council
  • United Fresh

In her opening remarks, Skor emphasized that while USMCA does not specifically make changes to existing ethanol trade agreements, maintaining open and free trade between the three countries is vital to the U.S. ethanol industry. Canada is now the top destination for U.S. ethanol exports, and Mexico is the largest importer of U.S. DDGs. And as both Canada and Mexico look to adopt more standards and regulations that include higher ethanol blends, it’s important that we preserve free trade and this agreement to ensure continued growth between our countries.
