American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the nomination of Elaine Trevino for chief agricultural trade negotiator at the United States Trade Representative.

“AFBF is encouraged by President Biden’s nomination of Elaine Trevino as chief agricultural trade negotiator. Her strong roots in agriculture and her experience in America’s largest exporting state have prepared her for the challenges of representing the nation on trade issues.

“Opportunities to create new trade agreements with the European Union and Great Britain as well as expanding the China Phase 1 agreement make filling this position with the most qualified person extremely important. We look forward to working with Ms. Trevino to help ensure a level playing field and to create new avenues for farmers and ranchers to feed the world.”
