Soy Growers Hope Partial Agreement is Step Toward Ending Trade War

Oct 14, 2019

St. Louis, MO. Oct. 12, 2019.  Reports of a partial agreement came Oct. 11 after a week of meetings between the Trump Administration and Chinese officials. ASA is hopeful this "Phase 1" agreement will signal a deescalation in the ongoing U.S.-China trade war.

While it is good news to hear the United States and China have reached a partial agreement in this conflict, ASA is still awaiting additional information on the initial agreement and the potential impact on U.S. soy growers. ASA remains hopeful this is a step toward rescinding the tariffs and helping restore certainty and stability to the soy industry.
