US pushes Mexico for approval of GM crops

The United States recently pressured Mexico to allow genetically modified crops into the country and to open up access to US-grown potatoes.

United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai pushed for the concessions during a meeting in Mexico City with Mexican Agriculture Minister Víctor Villalobos and Economy Minister Tatiana Clouthier.

“Ambassador Tai emphasised the importance of Mexico immediately resuming the authorization of biotechnology products and inquired about the status of expanding access for U.S. fresh potatoes throughout Mexico,” the Office of the US Trade representative said in a statement.
