Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Farm Progress America, March 3, 2022

Max Armstrong reports he's learned something new about how global trade is working

Max Armstrong got new insight on trade from last week's USDA Ag Outlook Conference including the question why more hasn't been done on new trade agreements. During the event Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack quizzed U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai about free trade agreements. Tai responded that agreements aren't the only tool available for boosting trade. Max details this alternative approach.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
