According to recent report that this week, the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba (USACC) has selected USA Rice Vice President of Government Affairs Ben Mosely as a co-chair of its Legislative Committee. The objective of the Legislative Committee is to work to manage the Coalition’s collective federal lobbying efforts and to remove financing and trade barriers currently in place with Cuba. Further, the USA Rice is one of USACC’s founding members and makes up one of more than 100 organizations that share a similar goal of normalizing agriculture trade with Cuba.
According to the report, Mr Devry Boughner Vorwerk, chair of the USACC, narrated that Mr Ben has been a strong contributor to our legislative efforts and is a strategic and innovative thinker on Hill strategy. In fact, we are pleased that he is willing to step up and agreed to lead. In reference to his new role Mr Mosely told, that USA Rice has been working to end this embargo for decades so it makes sense for us to hold a leadership role in the Coalition and help to provide direction for our momentum. Further, we plan to ramp up our advocacy efforts on the Hill before Congress heads out of town for summer recess and look forward to building on our existing successes over the last 18 months.
