RFA president reiterates importance of trade to US agricultural sector

On Tuesday, 400 US biodiesel delegates met in Detroit to attend the Export Exchange 2016 conference, co-sponsored by the US Grains Council and The Renewable fuels Association. At the event Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of RFA, discussed his opinion of the upcoming US presidential election and its potential impact on international trade.

“No matter who wins the presidential election on Nov. 8, trade is too important to our consumers, our agricultural system and our entire economy to be relegated to the kind of hyperbolic, overblown and ultimately counterproductive political rhetoric that has beset the campaigns in recent months,” he said. “Despite that rhetoric, we believe free and fair trade, and trade pacts, are going to continue to play an important role in our agricultural economy.”
