Today, the President of the United States signed into law the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), initiating a new chapter in U.S. trade policy. Mexico and the United States have now passed the USMCA, and we look forward to the Canadian Parliament’s consideration of this agreement. The passage of the USMCA is a historic achievement. It is the gold standard of trade agreements. The USMCA modernizes and updates our trade relations and will promote prosperity and strengthen North American competitiveness.
