SALTILLO, Coah., October 20, 2022.- The Minister of Agriculture and Livestock of Sinaloa, chairman of AMSDA and leader of the Mexican delegation at the Mexico-US-Canada trilateral agricultural meeting, José Jaime Montes Salas, said the three countries spoke for continuing to promote and maintain the dialogue as the only way to resolve all contingencies and in a brotherly way to resolve them so that in the long run we improve our regional interaction day by day.
According to a press release, Montes Salas, when he participated in the binational meeting between Mexico and the United States, as part of the activities of this trinational event, said that both countries are united in the dialogue to build the necessary mechanisms for the growth in volume and flow economically. “Mexico’s position is clear, we need to analyze each case through science and in depth, because that way we will be more certain of the trace to the future of each of the foods that enter and leave our borders.”
The leader of the Mexican delegation at this trinational event gave as an example that, at this time of the world food crisis, Mexico and President Andrés Manuel López Obrador have implemented some regulations, such as opening actions against famine and inflation, such as absorbing the tariff on ammonium sulfate sold by the United States. “The same plan makes the flow of goods between the two countries easier and today, more than ever before, Mexico has bought more yellow corn than ever from the United States.”
That is why he said that the three countries must analyze these issues carefully, based on technology, science and evidence with all responsibility, because just as Mexico has to judge how it will receive the food it imports, its countries must be careful about the products that come from our country are shipped.
The president of the agriculture minister in Mexico explained that we must all submit to the established regulations and yet “decisions outside that framework have been taken in a practical way from the fraternal and transparent point of view between our countries.”
Montes Salas raised an issue that is still on the economic agenda between the US and Mexico, such as the export of potatoes to Mexico. All of this is a sign of our government’s willingness to continue in a commercial and healthcare harmony for our long-term health and strength.
The Sinaloa official also took part in the panel discussion on supply chains and food safety in North America, where he highlighted the need to move towards a precision economy to plan and bridge that huge gap between what consumers demand, such as the key player in the supply chain.
The tri-national event saw representatives of the agriculture departments of several states of the US and Canada, led by Derek Johnson, Manitoba Secretary of Agriculture and Leader of the Canadian Delegation, and Doug Miyamoto, Director of the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, President of NASDA and leader of the US delegation.
During this trinational agricultural meeting, delegates focused on current and topical topics of mutual interest, such as soil health and conservation, global food security, supply chain integrity, regulatory harmonization, agricultural technology and diseases, animals. issues that are part of a work agenda that will remain open to seek better conditions for trade in agricultural products between the three nations.
