Statement by USTR Spokesperson Neena Moorjani Regarding Tentative Agreement with Canada on Softwood Lumber
04/27/2006
 

"Late Tuesday night we reached a tentative agreement with the Government of Canada that would resolve the longstanding softwood lumber dispute between our countries. Given the nature of the agreement and ongoing litigation, it will ultimately be up to our respective industries to decide if they want to embrace a solid market-based agreement that can bring some stability to the North American lumber market or if they choose instead many more years of litigation, acrimony and market uncertainty. The U.S. industry was briefed about the agreement, and despite reservations, has indicated its willingness to accept it."
