International Policy

With approximately 50% of the rice produced in the United States exported, USA Rice works with the Administration and Congress to develop policies and regulations that allow us to market U.S.-grown rice globally.  This includes pushing for reforms to current trade deals, as well as developing new trade deals with our international partners.
