North American Meat Institute Expresses Support for Cuba Trade Act

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Washington, D.C.—The North American Meat Institute (NAMI) today expressed its support for the Cuba Trade Act of 2015, a bipartisan bill introduced by Representatives Tom Emmer (R-MN) and Kathy Castor (D-FL) that would lift the Cuba embargo and allow the private sector to trade with Cuba. Critically, the legislation would remove the current prohibition against private financing for agricultural sales to Cuba. The Meat Institute looks forward to working with Congress to pass the legislation and begin a new policy of engagement with Cuba that provides new opportunities for increasing trade.
