A U.S. Congressman from South Dakota says lawmakers have decided to endorse 150 policy proposals to rebalance the U.S. economic relationship with China.
Dusty Johnson is on the U.S. Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party and tells Brownfield a report endorsed by the committee addresses foreign ag land ownership.
“We do call out the China Communist Party shouldn’t be able to invest in American farmland or ag processing and the report calls for a far more robust role for the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.”
Farmers For Free Trade has expressed concerns the committee was considering a repeal of China’s Permanent Normal Trade Relations status, but Johnson says a repeal was not included in the proposals.
