Kitco News

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Economy Minister Graciela Marquez said on Wednesday that she will likely speak to U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross later in the day to discuss a bilateral row over tomato tariffs.

In early May, the Trump administration imposed a 17.5% tariff on Mexican tomatoes after the two countries were unable to renew a 2013 agreement that suspended a U.S. anti-dumping investigation.
