Statement on Nomination of Katherine Tai for U.S. Trade Representative

“The American Sugar Alliance welcomes President-elect Biden’s nomination of Katherine Tai to be the next U.S. Trade Representative. Ms. Tai has an impeccable reputation as a tough and effective negotiator, with a proven track record of advancing U.S. trade interests and countering unfair trade practices. With the global sugar market more distorted and dysfunctional than ever, we look forward to working closely with USTR-designate Tai to protect America’s no-cost sugar policy and ensure that America’s sugar farmers and workers can continue producing a sustainable and affordable supply of sugar.” – American Sugar Alliance
