U.S. submits formal dispute for Mexico ban of GMO corn; Nebraska delegation lauds decision
Washington, June 2, 2023
The United States has requested formal dispute settlement consultations with Mexico regarding GMO corn.
U.S. trade representative Katherine Tai made the announcement Friday, seeking assistance under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
“The United States has repeatedly conveyed its concerns that Mexico’s biotechnology policies are not based on science and threaten to disrupt U.S. exports to Mexico to the detriment of agricultural producers, which in turn can exacerbate food security challenges,” Ambassador Tai said. “Mexico’s biotechnology policies also stifle agricultural innovation that helps American farmers respond to pressing climate challenges, increase farm productivity, and improve farmers’ livelihoods.”
