AFRE’s Associate Professor and a collaborator on Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy’s Africa Great Lakes Coffee (AGLC) project, David Ortega, offers insights on the new import taxes underscoring China's role as growing U.S. food supplier. The article, "New Import Taxes Underscore China's Role As Growing U.S. Food Supplier" explores the Trump administration's leveled new tariffs on more than $100 billion worth of imports from China. Ortega States, "China has grown into the third-biggest supplier of foreign food to the U.S., behind Canada and Mexico. So when the trade war turns into a food fight, the indigestion cuts both ways."
