NFTC Statement on Preliminary U.S.-Mexico Trade Deal

Washington D.C. – NFTC President Rufus Yerxa today released the following statement following the announcement by the President that the United States has reached a preliminary trade deal with Mexico:

"Ever since the President first decided to renegotiate NAFTA, American industry has pressed for a continued three-way deal that would expand, not shrink, economic opportunities for the North American region.

"While we're still awaiting the full details of this preliminary deal with Mexico, it is critical that any modernized NAFTA continue to include all three North American partners. NAFTA has made North America an economic powerhouse, and the only way we can compete for global markets with Asian and European producers is to maintain and strengthen the entire North American production base."
