  • I had the pleasure to meet with Vietnam Vice President Vo Thi Anh Xuan to discuss progress on key agricultural issues, such as market access for U.S. stone fruit, cooperation on ethanol, & biotech approvals. Vietnam is one of our most important & dynamic ag markets in Asia.
  • The increasing demand for biomass is a golden opportunity to expand markets and create new revenue for American farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners, particularly in rural areas.
    • During an Advanced Bioeconomy Leadership Council meeting, we released a plan to boost supply chain resiliency for domestic biobased product manufacturing and advance environmental sustainability & market opportunities for small & mid-sized producers.
    • This comprehensive roadmap not only builds on @POTUS‘ commitment to advancing America’s domestic bioeconomy but will strengthen our production & preprocessing systems to provide incentives for producers & manufacturers so that biomass can be used to fuel the American bioeconomy.
