-Canada trade relations. Trump, who was elected with the help of strong rural support, has pledged to renegotiate Nafta to help USA industry.

One senior government official who spoke on the condition of anonymity characterized one portion of the visit as a "trade-mission oriented trip on softwood". Decisions are also expected in the coming weeks on duties on Canadian lumber, another installment of a once-a-decade feud between Canadian and American lumber producers.

Relations with the U.S. are crucial for Canada, since more than 75 percent of its exports go to the U.S. Eighteen percent of U.S. exports go to Canada. "My role as chief marketing officer of Canada is to make sure the forestry industry throughout Canada is healthy".

The Americans are looking at increasing the 62.5 per cent rules of origin threshold for tariff free status in autos and other manufactured products entering the U.S. If increased to 70 per cent, many Mexican plants would be shuttered and relocated back to the U.S. or Canada.

"Canada Wood China is vying for a piece of China's $44-billion hotel industry by promoting low-density, wood-frame hotels to the Chinese hotel industry", the organization's website added. Canada was the third-largest destination for USA dairy exports, behind Southeast Asia and Mexico previous year. "A protracted dispute will only drive up the cost of wood and homes for US consumers". "A protracted dispute will only drive up the cost of wood and homes for US consumers", Freeland said.

Trump's tirade, which came only two months after he beamed about his country's "very outstanding trade relationship with Canada", seemed to refer to several dozen Wisconsin farmers who recently complained to their state and Congressional representatives about Canadian policies that make it hard for them to sell ultrafiltered milk to cheese and yogurt processors across the border.

Herman said that raises the likelihood that supply management will be on the table in future trade negotiations during which the US will try to win an increase for its dairy imports into Canada.

The company recently said that its South America region "remains challenged from macro-economic and political standpoints". They were met Thursday by a curtain of tear gas and rubber bullets as they attempted to march to downtown Caracas .

Leaders from both nations say they would support President Donald Trump if he included the WTO in a trade dispute over a milk pricing scheme by Canada that is harming USA dairy farmers.

"Canada would enter any negotiations with the objective to make it better for both countries", Carr said.

MacNaughton said the US enjoys a dairy trade surplus with Canada.

But they do represent a marked departure from Trump's warm words for Canada after he met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Washington in February.

"Canada, what they've done to our dairy farm workers, is a disgrace. It's a disgrace", Trump said.

USA dairy groups appealed to Trump for help after Canada recently introduced a new policy that gives Canadian producers an incentive to buy domestic supplies of ultra-filtered milk, a concentrated ingredient used to boost protein content in cheese and yogurt. Trump's comments were the second time this week he has attacked Canada's dairy industry and on Thursday he included the lumber, timber and energy sectors in a list of what he said were problematic areas of trade.
