October 5, 2017, Washington - American negotiators are expected to present their dairy and poultry sector demands during the next round of NAFTA talks, which begin in Washington next week.

The U.S. will be looking for increased access to Canada's dairy and poultry markets, according to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue.

"Obviously we need to keep these markets open," Perdue told a public forum organized by the Washington International Trade Association.

"We're going to lay some things on the table in this next round."
