Overview: NGFA is focused on expanding markets.
The NGFA supports a proactive U.S. trade agenda focused on expanding market access and fostering the use of science-based health and safety rules to create additional market opportunities for U.S. grains, oilseeds and value-added exports.
NGFA’s trade priorities.
U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)
The biggest immediate priority for the NGFA and many other food and agricultural organizations is to engage quickly and constructively with the new Trump administration on the path forward on trade. The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) would bring about several significant advancements in facilitating the trade of grains, oilseeds and their derived products in the North American marketplace.

While the U.S. has formally withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Asia Pacific region remains the world’s largest, rapidly growing market for food and agriculture products.
Countries in the Trans-Pacific Partnership currently account for up to 42 percent of all U.S. agricultural exports, totaling $63 billion. NGFA will work with the new administration to advance U.S. interests in this vital region so that our producers do not fall behind our competitors.
