Mexico, willing to standardize practices in agri-food commerce

The U.S., Canada and Mexico are willing to maintain regional growth, due to the positive results attained over the last 20 years. Jose Calzada Rovirosa, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), affirms that Mexico is willing to standardize certain criteria related to food health and safety regulations. Calzada Rovirosa underscored that this is one of the steadiest sectors in this context; Mexico exports to 160 countries around the world, and from these, exports worth US$83 million per day, go to the U.S. For this reason, and keeping information on hand, moderation of the NAFTA must be sought after.
