Albuquerque, December 13– The following is the Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce’s statement on the first phase of the trade deal between the United States and China. The agreement means the Chinese will make massive purchases of American farm goods and manufactured products.
“This first phase of the U.S.-China trade deal is tremendous and shows how Trump is truly making America great. The President is ensuring that the new preliminary agreement includes economic rules that will promote American farm goods and other products. This deal will be an economic shot in the arm for New Mexico, particularly for our farmers. We have a huge agriculture industry, and the agreement with the Chinese will mean more exports for New Mexico’s producers, including our pecan farmers. We are among the leading producers of pecans in the country. The deal will mean more agribusiness exports to China and will help solidify this industry here in New Mexico and around the world. The President again is showing that his policies and trade initiatives are improving the lives of Americans.”
