Fair trade policies help workers, businesses, and farmers in Minnesota. But when other countries don’t abide by international trade rules and aren’t held accountable, our workers lose out on jobs. It’s why Tina supports fair trade, while making sure Minnesota producers are protected in trade agreements.

As Lt. Governor, Tina led a delegation of Minnesota’s farm leaders to Cuba to build relationships for possible future agricultural sales. And now as Senator, Tina continues to advocate for a trade relationship between Minnesota and Cuba. Senator Smith is a cosponsor of the Freedom to Export to Cuba Act, which would lift the current embargo on trade with Cuba. She believes that Cuba is a positive economic orbit for the United States and specifically Minnesota, given that the state and Cuba have very little overlap in the products they produce.
