Negotiations with Mexico continue after the country’s president announced a potential ban on U.S. GMO corn. After months of meetings, clarity and a nod from the U.S. that the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement would bar the move, Mexico has published a new decree.
The country’s Secretary of Economy, Raquel Buenrostro, shared this week that Mexico will allow GMO corn imports if U.S. GMO corn can pass the sanitary filters of the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risk (Cofepris). While Buenrostro didn’t specify a date, he said a new decree should be published within a few days. The news is welcomed by U.S. corn growers and shippers and should eliminate the possibility of a trade dispute.
