Since 1922

Dear AHEC members,

 

While the agreement has not yet been signed and details are still emerging there are very positive signs that our industry has indeed been heard by the Administration and hardwoods are very much a part of the discussion.  Below is a link sent by Dana Cole of the Hardwood Federation of Ambassador Lighthizer on Fox News this morning specifically  mentioning hardwoods as part of China’s commitment to increasing  agricultural imports from the United States. Hardwood is mention is at 1:56 of this clip as to how “other areas of agriculture classified as manufacturing” that the Chinese will use to get to the $50B/yr number that US negotiators are seeking.

We do not expect to see any specific details or commitments until the Phase 1 agreement is signed—probably in early January assuming everything stays on track.

We will keep you update to date on any details as soon as they emerge.

 

Sincerely,

Michael S Snow

Executive Director
