USTR Report Cites Impediments to U.S. Dairy ExportsUSTR Report Cites Impediments to U.S. Dairy Exports

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USTR Report Cites Impediments to U.S. Dairy Exports By Ashley Davenport – Apr 1, 2021 Facebook Twitter The U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) urged the Biden Administration to work to eliminate foreign tariffs on and nontariff impediments to U.S. exports, following the release Wednesday by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) of the 2021 National Trade Estimate Report on Foreign Trade Barriers.The annual report looks at progress made and challenges remaining on U.S. trade, investment and services in countries around the globe. Compiled from information from USTR, interagency partners and public stakeholders, this year’s report covers 65 countries and regions, including Arab League nations, the European Union (EU), key Asian markets and important Western Hemisphere destinations for U.S. dairy products.USDEC and NMPF submitted comments on the major trade obstacles facing the U.S. dairy industry last October, pointing out that tariffs and nontariff barriers in many countries remain significant roadblocks to American dairy exports. Several of those concerns were incorporated in USTR’s report including dairy trade issues in Mexico, Canada, China and the EU, among others. In addition, USTR highlighted in its release that the key agricultural trade barriers captured in the NTE included “restrictions on the ability of U.S. producers to use the common names of the products that they produce and export”.“Exports are extremely important to the U.S. dairy industry, which shipped more than $6.5 billion of product to destinations worldwide in 2020,” said Krysta Harden, President and CEO of USDEC. “Obstacles to those exports negatively affect the economic well-being of America’s dairy farmers and jeopardize dairy processing jobs and workers throughout the supply chain who support our industry. These barriers must be removed.”“We need USTR to continue pressing our trading partners to eliminate tariffs and nontariff barriers that restrict our dairy exports,” added Jim Mulhern, President and CEO of NMPF. “The best way to do that is by implementing new Free Trade Agreements and enforcing existing agreements.”USDEC and NMPF in their comments focused on barriers in key dairy export markets such as Canada, China, the EU and Mexico. Among the bigger obstacles cited by the organizations were the misuse of geographical indications (GIs) and unscientific import requirements and mandates.On GIs, for example, the EU has sought to effectively monopolize common cheese terms by attempting to prohibit American cheese makers from using names such as asiago, feta, gorgonzola, gruyere and parmesan and keep out imports of U.S.-made cheeses with those names, not only in EU nations, but in other countries as well.The EU also is a leading offender in employing prescriptive requirements to limit imports, including dairy products, imposing, for example, specific animal disease oversight and documentation procedures and limiting the use of veterinary drugs and commonly used antimicrobials. These are the kinds of barriers USDEC and NMPF urge USTR to remove to ensure exports of U.S. dairy products are available to consumers around the world and to protect the millions of American jobs supported by the U.S. dairy industry.Source: National Milk Producers Federation news release SHARE Previous articleHAT Market Analysis for 4/1/21 with Kokomo Grain’s Mike SilverNext articleHow to Start Clean and Stay Clean This Spring Ashley Davenport Facebook Twitter SHARE USTR Report Cites Impediments to U.S. Dairy Exportslast_img read more

Ideye accepts criticismIdeye accepts criticism

first_img Press Association The 26-year-old striker became the Baggies’ record signing when they shelled out £10million to bring him to The Hawthorns from Dynamo Kiev last summer. But he has been a major disappointment, scoring only twice in 14 Premier League appearances, the majority of which have come off the bench. Brown Ideye accepts all the criticism that has been levelled at him since his big-money move to West Brom but hopes he will be given the chance to prove himself. West Brom were reported to be willing to cut their losses and sell Ideye to Qatar club Al Gharafa during the January window, but their failure to secure a replacement earned him a stay of execution. The Nigeria international feels he deserves another chance and is motivated to show Baggies fans what he can really do. Ideye said: “I never thought I was going to leave West Brom for a club in Qatar. I haven’t really started playing football for West Brom so I think I should have more time. “I’ve been having a lot of support from the fans and people at the club so I don’t think now should be the time for me to leave. “People can say what they want, they have the right to do that. Since I came here I haven’t been that Brown Ideye that people know and I feel bad about it. “This is England and if you’re not giving your best, people talk. I think they are right in everything they say. “I should be on top of my game but it’s not possible for you to be on top of your game when you’re sitting on the bench so I just have to keep pushing on, even if I only have 10 or 15 minutes in the game. I have to prove myself.” Ideye was on the bench again when West Brom travelled to Burnley on Sunday but he was given 45 minutes and headed in the equaliser that earned Tony Pulis’ side a 2-2 draw. “I’ve been waiting for this moment,” he said. “As a striker I like to score goals in every game and I don’t see why it’s not possible for me to start from now doing what people believed from me. “I came here to score goals and I hope this will just be the start. It was an important goal and I think that said it all.” Pulis would love nothing more than for Ideye to live up to his price tag, and he praised the striker’s contribution at Turf Moor. The West Brom boss said: “It was a great header. He looked dangerous when he came on and sharp, and that’s what we need.” Burnley were left ruing their inability to hold onto a lead for the third time in four games after going two up inside 32 minutes. The point was enough to lift them out of the relegation zone but they have a formidable run of fixtures coming up, starting with a trip to Manchester United on Wednesday. Matches against Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal follow over the next couple of months, but the Clarets can take confidence from having fought back to claim a draw at City in December. For midfielder David Jones, Wednesday means a trip back to the club where he began his career. He said: “You always want to play at stadiums like that against good players and good teams. “I spent a lot of my early days there so it’ll be nice to see a few people but we want to go there and get something, that’s the most important thing. “We’re not expected to get anything. We can go there with total freedom. Obviously we’re confident in our own ability, and if we do our jobs and play really well, then we’re definitely in with a chance. “We’re going to have to step up to the plate and I’m looking forward to the challenge.” last_img read more
