USTR gathering feedback on non-tariff trade barriers

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is gathering feedback concerning non-tariff trade barriers.

Minnesota Soybean Growers executive director Joe Smentek tells Brownfield the Association submitted comments on several issues.

“China still has some non-tariff trade barriers that we face. The UK has some similar ones, along with the European Union.”

He says the issue with the United Kingdom stems from that country’s process of reviewing pesticides and chemicals.
