Argentina hopes to keep trade deal with US



Petroleumworld.com 01 24 2017

Argentina's agriculture minister said Sunday that Buenos Aires was confident that the new United States president would respect the bilateral trade agreements signed in 2016.

Ricardo Buryaile told Radio Con Vos that he was hopeful that Donald Trump would not abandon the trade deals covering exports of beef and lemons.

I don't see anything like that happening because all the health and political steps have been followed, there was a right to oppose it in Congress, and that was overcome. We're waiting, but every country is sovereign when it comes to its decisions, the agriculture minister said.

Argentine President Mauricio Macri and former US President Barack Obama signed the trade agreements in March 2016.

Argentina said on Dec. 20 that US health officials had approved exports of lemons to the United States following a 15-year ban.

The South American country, one of the world's largest growers and exporters of lemons, had been trying to regain entry to the US market since 2008.

US health officials banned imports of Argentine lemons in September 2001.

The Argentine government said last September that efforts to re-enter the US beef market were making progress.
