ROSEN VOICES SUPPORT FOR U.S.-CHINA DEAL ON BEEF EXPORTS

June 15, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement voicing her support for the Department of Agriculture’s announcement to lift a 14-year ban on U.S. beef exports with China:

“Today’s trade negotiation is a win for Nevada and represents a step in the right direction to create economic opportunity. Since the early 2000s, ranchers across the U.S. and in Nevada have experienced significant challenges to entering Chinese markets, placing us at an economic disadvantage.  China is becoming one of the greatest importers of beef worldwide with a growing middle-class that is buying record amounts of beef. By reaching a deal on beef imports, Nevada cattleman and farmers will have greater opportunities to compete in the beef industry. I hope to see additional trade deals reached that eliminate barriers and create level playing fields for U.S. industries to compete globally.  ”
