June 17, 2020

USSEC’s Asia Trade Exchange 2020 which opened on Monday saw the annual conference go virtual as a result of Covid-19. Addressing a global audience yesterday, US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Purdue emphasized that global trade remains critical to the health of the US rural economy, while contributing to the wellbeing of farmers throughout the world. “Export of US soy and grains has contributed to the development of livestock production in many countries leading to job creation, economic development and food security – truly a win-win for us all. We offer reliability and a consistent supply that we can be counted on to deliver.”
