AGRICULTURAL MARKETS

[H. con. Res. isi]

Whereas the producers of food and fiber in the United States have the capacity to produce 40 percent more than is consumed in the domestic market; Whereas economic prosperity of the United States farmer and rural America are unalterably linked to strong agricultural exports and export growth; Whereas agricultural exports have declined for the past 6 years and the farm and rural economic sector of the United States continues to suffer; Whereas the potential for an increase in demand for United States agricultural exports to developing countries can be enhanced through extension of economic assistance and other mecisures to promote economic growth in those countries; Whereas the recommendations of the National Commission on Agricultural Trade and Export Policy, and the preponderance of the research of the Economic Research Service of the Department of Agriculture, private foundations, land grant colleges, and other institutions, support the use of a coordinated program of food aid and economic development assistance to build future foreign commercial markets for United States agricultural products; and Whereas the food aid and agricultural export development tools provided in the Food Security Act of 1985 have not been used to the fullest extent possible: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That Congress urges the President— Exports. (1) to make development of agricultural markets in developing countries a high priority of the foreign economic policy of the Nation; and (2) in doing so, to make more effective use of the food aid and agricultural export development tools provided in the Food Security Act of 1985 and other laws, by developing, on a country by country basis, a broad, comprehensive, and integrated program of food aid and economic development assistance to build future foreign commercial markets for United States agricultural products. Agreed to August 7, 1987.
