President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of Mexico announced this week he is seeking a deal with Washington after the U.S. threatened legal action regarding Mexico’s plan to ban imports of genetically modified corn in 2024. U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the program could violate details of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Details have not been shared on whether Mexico’s President discussed details of corn imports, such as if there are plans to reduce them even if a ban does not go into effect. He did state that the country would like health officials from both countries to assess the impact of GMO corn on human health.
