NFTC Statement on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Washington D.C. – National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) President Rufus Yerxa today released the following statement following the submission by USTR of the proposed text of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA):

"The NFTC is pleased to see that the new NAFTA – now the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) – will remain a trilateral agreement. The text of this new agreement has hundreds of pages and includes numerous new provisions, so it will take some time for us to fully assess its effects for our member companies and for countless businesses across our country whose success depends on a robust North American economy."
