BATON ROUGE - "Renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement made significant progress yesterday as President Trump announced a preliminary agreement  with Mexico, a major market for Louisiana-agricultural exports. The agreement eliminates tariffs on agricultural products and makes significant progress on streamlining non-tariff barriers to our products. I look forward to learning more details on the agreement in the days ahead and how it could impact Louisiana's agricultural producers.”
