Title: NCBA Applauds Nomination of Former Chief Economist Doud to USTR Post

WASHINGTON (June 19, 2017) - Colin Woodall, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, today released the following statement in response to Gregg Doud’s nomination to be the chief negotiator on agricultural issues in the office of the U.S. Trade Representative:

“Gregg has been a friend and colleague for many years, and I can testify first-hand that America’s cattlemen and women will be well-served by having Gregg at the table as agricultural trade deals are hammered out. The U.S. Senate should confirm his nomination as soon as possible.

“Gregg was NCBA’s chief economist for eight years, and he understands as well as anybody the importance of exports for our industry. As important trade negotiations take place over NAFTA and hopefully a bilateral agreement with Japan, we look forward to working with Gregg and his team to ensure that the voice of American beef producers is heard loud and clear.”
