MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican Economy Minister Graciela Marquez said on Wednesday she had spoken with U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross about the U.S.-Mexico trade relationship.
“Among other issues, I asked for his support in finding a solution for the tomato suspension agreement,” the Mexican official wrote in a post on Twitter.
The U.S. Commerce Department said in early February that the United States would resume an anti-dumping investigation into Mexican tomatoes, withdrawing from a 2013 managed trade deal that U.S. growers and lawmakers say has failed.
At the time, Commerce said it was giving the required 90-day notice before terminating the six-year-old agreement not to pursue anti-dumping cases against fresh tomato imports from Mexico.
