IRVINE, Calif. (Oct. 21, 2011)—Today, Mexico suspended all retaliatory tariffs against the United States in response to the implementation of a July U.S.-Mexico agreement. This ends more than two and a half years of tariffs over a cross-border trucking dispute. It will have a positive impact on the fresh produce industry and level the playing field between the two countries.
