USSEC vice chairman and ASA director Monte Peterson says that although trade issues between the U.S. and China have been difficult for U.S. soybean farmers, particularly those in northern states, it is important that buyers and sellers continue to get together and talk face to face, as they did at the U.S. Soy Global Trade Exchange. It is important, he states, that U.S. Soy finds other markets and adapts to different trade flows.
