Mexico announced today an end to countervailing duties on U.S. beef and veal – duties that have been in place since 2000.
The duties were put in place for certain U.S. packers amid dumping allegations raised by Mexican livestock producers. The U.S. became a net cattle and beef exporter to Mexico in 1996 and today represents a $910 million beef export market.
“The elimination of these duties is a positive development,” said AMI President J. Patrick Boyle, “because a cooperative trading relationship between the U.S. and Mexico is in our mutual best interests.”share on facebook share on twitter
