Matt Lantz Presents at World Trade Organization
On July 11, Matt Lantz, BCI's Vice President for Market Access, spoke at the World Trade Organization in Geneva on the potential impact European pesticide regulatory policies may have on agriculture exports to the Community. Drawing from a report Bryant Christie Inc. produced in October 2017, Lantz explained that up to 64% of agriculture exports to the EU could be affected. While all regions of the world are likely to feel an impact from the EU policies, Central and South America and Sub Saharan Africa are the most likely to face challenges
The meeting, sponsored by the US and Canadian governments, brought together officials from numerous countries to discuss EU pesticide maximum residue level (MRLs) policies in international trade.
