USMEF strongly supports Secretary Perdue’s establishment of an undersecretary for trade and foreign agricultural affairs within USDA, in accordance with the 2014 farm bill. USMEF was an early supporter of this initiative and we feel this will be a very positive addition to the department. We look forward to further details regarding this appointment.
