Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel released the following statement after President Donald Trump’s signing of the United States-China Phase One Economic and Trade Agreement.
“Oklahoma Farm Bureau today celebrates the signing of the first phase of a new U.S.-Chinese trade deal. Oklahoma farmers and ranchers proudly produce food, fiber and fuel for our country and our world. This trade agreement will help pave the way for our agricultural producers to receive a fairer price for their products in a world market.
“Today’s agreement, which includes purchase targets of $40 to $50 billion of agricultural products by China, is the breakthrough deal agriculture has been waiting for. We thank the Trump administration for their diligent efforts to make this first phase of the Chinese trade deal a reality for agriculture and our rural communities.”
