A story of pork

A history of pig is degenerating relations between the U.S. and Mexico. The National Pork Producers Association asked recently to president Obama to find a solution to that situation.

According to an article from MeatPoultry, an online publication the pork importation and exportation is growing since 1993. Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (between Canada/U.S.A./Mexico) was implemented, Mexico became the second largest market for that industry.

However, since couple week, without a real notice, Mexican Officials changed the habits by restraining the importation of pork in their country. A new tax of 5 percent was introduced at the border, a result that is placing the American pork no in a competitive market, said the representative on the industry.

When we look closer to the dispute, it reveals that Mexico and U.S.A. are having many concerns on what should be included or not in the N.A.F.T.A., which was enforced officially in 1994.
