Mexico warns of trade barriers effects
MEXICO has warned the US that its plans to tighten up inspections of food imports were likely to have repercussions for its trade with other nations.
Mr Louis Alacalle, Mexicos trade attaché to Washington, said the US should strike a balance between protecting health and measures that might become new trade barriers.
Mexico exports $4bn-$5bn of agricultural products to the US annually.
