As the 6th round of NAFTA negotiations are underway, the agriculture community, along with a wide coalition of business, industry and manufacturing groups are taking to Twitter and utilizing the hashtag #NAFTAWorks to promote NAFTA and tout its success and impact on rural America.
Under NAFTA, U.S. soy exports to Canada and Mexico were almost $3 billion in 2016, and U.S. soy exports to Mexico have grown four-fold under the agreement. Additionally, $43 billion of agriculture products are exported to Canada and Mexico every year.
NAFTA gives farmers access to a robust and vital marketplace, while providing countless jobs and boosting the national and rural economy.
NAFTA matters and more importantly, NAFTA works.
