Young: Trade Issue Could Be 'More Disruptive'

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Senator Todd Young (R-IN) says he shares the anxieties of Indiana's ag producers and business community when it comes to the debate over tariffs. Young says the country's ongoing trade issues have been disruptive for Indiana's trade economy and it could become more disruptive. He says the U.S. needs more clarity and a comprehensive written strategy with respect to its trade policy and other international economic policies. 

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Young discussed ways to improve the trade issue in the country which, in turn, will benefit Indiana.

"Let's continue to open up foreign markets through trade diplomacy and, where appropriate, fair trade agreements like the new NAFTA 2.0 that the president was able to negotiate," said Young. "Let's continue to make sure that Indiana's a great place to work, live and play and our economy will grow as a byproduct of that."

Young says the passage of the Farm Bill was extremely important, including for Indiana farmers. He says it provides more flexibility for Hoosier ag producers and more protections for Indiana's biotechnology expertise. 

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Young talked about local and national policies he believes will strengthen Indiana's economy.
