Wheat Organizations Pleased with Break in U.S.-EU Dispute

Washington, DC — U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) and the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) welcome the announcement that the European Union and the United States have agreed to a four-month suspension of tariffs related to the World Trade Organization (WTO) Aircraft disputes.

This break removes the tariff barrier on U.S. hard red spring wheat imports by EU countries.

What follows is a joint statement from USW President Vince Peterson and NAWG CEO Chandler Goule:

"We want to thank the Biden Administration and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative for reaching this agreement.

"Our organizations encourage both parties to come to a long-term resolution to avoid future tariffs and supply chain disruptions."
