MANHATTAN, Kan. — Kansas Farm Bureau President Rich Felts issued the following statement on the US-China Phase One Agreement:
“Kansas Farm Bureau is pleased to see the United States and China have reached a deal to lessen trade barriers between the two countries. We commend President Trump on this first step in resolving the trade dispute. China is an important market for Kansas farmers and ranchers, and we urge both countries to continue working to create a free and fair market.
I’ve always said Kansas farmers and ranchers want trade, not aid. The commitment from China to make substantial additional purchases of U.S. goods is a positive step in that direction. I know Kansas farmers and ranchers are capable and willing to fulfill whatever the market demands.”
Kansas Farm Bureau’s mission is to strengthen agriculture and the lives of Kansans through advocacy, education and service.
