LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following news that President Donald J. Trump had struck a new, preliminary trade deal with Mexico.


“Mexico is one of Nebraska’s best customers, and a new deal will give more certainty to our farm families headed into harvest.  During our mission to Mexico last week, we talked to leaders in the country about buying more of Nebraska’s quality grains, and we are excited about the prospect of expanded reciprocal trade with this new agreement.  It is my hope that Canada will come to the table quickly, and I urge President Trump to continue to work to expand markets for Nebraska’s quality ag products and manufactured goods.”


Last week, Governor Ricketts returned from a trade mission to Mexico.  More information about his trade mission can be found by clicking here.
