"Export markets are the future of agriculture," Perry said in 1994. "NAFTA is one of the tools that we have gotten." In 1993, he praised the GATT Agreement as a "good deal for Texas agriculture". More recently, Perry has said that he will "be urging 'our friends in Washington' not to enact regulations that would hinder free trade.
Perry did support price supports for farmers as a candidate for Agriculture Commissioner in 1990, but he has also bashed Republicans for supporting tariffs on steel.
