US farm exports seek wider market access

May 29, 2024


Concerns are mounting about the challenges faced by US agriculture in the global marketplace. Senator Joni Ernst is urging the government to prioritize expanding export opportunities for American farmers.

The Senator points to the projected $30.5 billion agricultural trade deficit for fiscal year 2024 as a worrying indicator. She blames the current trade deficit on a lack of focus on trade deals and persistent trade barriers.

Senator Ernst criticizes the administration's response to these issues, claiming a lack of concrete action. She expresses frustration with the lack of progress on trade agreements despite repeated discussions.

The Senator emphasizes the need for a more proactive approach to removing trade barriers and securing wider market access for US agricultural products. This, she argues, is critical to ensure the competitiveness of American farmers in the global market.
