The Equipment Dealers Association (formerly North American Equipment Dealers Association) is committed to helping dealers succeed.
NAEDA and a broad-based group of U.S. food and agricultural organizations and companies has written a letter to Ambassador Ron Kirk, United States Trade Representative, expressing support for the proposed U.S.-EU free trade agreement. The letter urged that the negotiations ensure that any resulting agreement be comprehensive in nature and address important impediments to trade in agricultural products.
The letter applauded continued statements by Administration officials confirming their intention to insist on such an outcome, but recent statements by EU officials suggest they are thinking differently. Press reports in connection with the recent approval by the European Parliament of the FTA negotiations have raised doubts about whether the EU will be prepared to deal with sanitary and phytosanitary issues and other non-tariff barriers, which have become the most important form of barrier to U.S. food and agricultural exports to the EU.
As a part of our ongoing effort to improve the value proposition for dealer members, the NAEDA Board of Directors recently decided to put Equipment Dealer magazine on a two- to three month hiatus while we work to expand the content and enhance the delivery of the publication. The “new and improved” magazine is a significant part of the associations’ ongoing communications initiative, which addresses our entire messaging platform – magazine, e-newsletter, web site, email and other key components.
