WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said on Thursday that the United States “probably made a mistake’ becoming too trade dependent on China, and that the administration was pursuing new trade deals elsewhere.

“We probably made a mistake in becoming too dependent on the China market,” he said in remarks to the fall forum of North American Meat Institute (NAMI).

“There’s a hungry world out there besides Canada, besides, China, and we’re pursing that,” he added, saying the administration was pursuing new agreements with the European Union and India, among others.
