One year on, Mexico’s beef at getting porked

17 March 2010

Via Mexico Trucker:

It’s… the eve of the first anniversary of the legal tariff’s that Mexico instituted in retaliation for the closure of the Cross Border Demonstration Project.

Our sources confirm that the rumors circulating that the Mexican government may update a trade retaliation list against U.S. products is true. This new list is very likely to include tariff’s on beef, pork and chicken products exported to Mexico.

For instance, in 2009, the United States exported more than 503,000 metric tons of pork to Mexico, for a value of $762 million, making it the No. 2 market for U.S. pork exports. Similar numbers show for chicken and beef.

More trucking and manufacturing jobs are sure to be lost, if this new round of tariff’s are implemented… and again, the blame will not be on Mexico, but squarely on the shoulders of …all who have opposed our compliance with NAFTA.

Sinaloa’s got better beef anyway.
