MEXICO CITY, March 16 (Reuters) - Mexico will not include rice, corn, beans or wheat among imports from the United States facing increased tariffs in a dispute over trucking, a spokesman for the Mexican economy ministry told Reuters on Monday.

"It won't be any of these products because Mexicans are sensitive to them," the spokesman said.

Mexico's government will likely announce on Wednesday what 90 industrial and agriculture goods will face higher tariffs in reprisal for U.S. cancellation of a pilot cross-border trucking program, the spokesman said. (Reporting by Adriana Barrera; editing by Richard Chang)
