MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A resolution could be reached in March on a trade dispute between the United States and Mexico over the Mexican government’s policy on genetically modified corn, Mexican Economy Minister Raquel Buenrostro said on Friday.
Washington has called in a dispute panel to settle its disagreement over Mexico’s policy to phase out use of GM corn for human consumption, arguing this will hurt U.S. producers.
