Sinaloa Governor will defend tomato producers in Washington


The state leader will meet with the Secretary of Commerce of the United States, Wilbur Ross and a high-level delegation

Los Mochis, Ahome, Sinaloa. – The objective of the visit that Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel will make next Monday to Washington, where he will hold a meeting with the Secretary of Commerce of the United States, Wilbur Ross, is to defend the cause of the producers. Sinaloa tomato, faced with the threat of “dumping” that wants to apply to Mexican exports, said the president himself.

It should be noted that last Tuesday the state governor met in Mexico City with the secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard Casaubón, with whom he first addressed this issue and the preparations for Monday’s visit to Washington, which will also attend the same Mexican Foreign Minister and John S. Creamer, Charge d’Affaires of the United States Embassy in Mexico.


The sub-secretary for North America of the SRE, Jesús Seade Kuri, will also be part of the delegation, who participated when Andrés Manuel López Obrador was elected president in the negotiation of the new free trade agreement with the United States.

“It will be a very profitable trip, important for the whole issue of the negotiation that is taking place with the tomato. The parties are sitting, on Friday there will be another meeting where a counterproposal will be made to the one that was already made with the people of the United States. We hope, on the one hand, that the extension will be given, the term will be extended but the approach that I made and managed before the federal government with the foreign minister and that was very generous of his part to take the charge of the Embassy’s office. The United States in Mexico, they are worried about the issue, “he said.

Ordaz Coppel added that regardless of the political circumstances currently experienced in the United States, the issue will be approached with patience but without ceasing to defend the producers.

“So we are going to support all producers and defend the cause because for Sinaloa that strategy is crucial,” he concluded.
