Congressman George Holding (NC-02) released the following statement welcoming President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to the United States while praising relations between the U.S. Mexico.
"I would like to welcome President López Obrador to the United States. Since the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), relations between our countries have been at an all time high.
"Mexico is currently the second largest market for U.S. agricultural exports, importing approximately $6 billion of GMO-derived products for food and feed. And while much has been accomplished between our countries in recent months, I'm hopeful we can continue working to advance agricultural issues -- especially those issues which benefit our farmers and their families in North Carolina -- in the coming months."
