Time to expand U.S. agricultural exports to Cuba

Senator Boozman of Arkansas

United States’ producers are unable to fully tap into the Cuban market because federal law prohibits private financing for agricultural trade with Cuba. This misguided policy creates a major roadblock to trade.

That’s why Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and I introduced the Agriculture Export Expansion Act to lift the ban on private banks and companies offering credit for agricultural exports to Cuba.

It’s a small step that would help level the playing field for farmers and exporters, while simultaneously exposing Cubans to American ideals, values and products. A true win-win for American farmers and the Cuban people.

U.S. Senator John Boozman, Member of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Commodities, Risk Management and Trade
