Canada Rejoins NAFTA Talks After Late-Night Agreement Results in Updated Dairy Terms for the USMon, 01 Oct 2018 09:51:59 CDT
Canada's Office of the Minister of Foreign Affairs released a joint statement from United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, Monday morning, breaking news that Canada has rejoined NAFTA as a result of a late-night agreement forged between the US and Mexico Sunday.
“Today, Canada and the United States reached an agreement, alongside Mexico, on a new, modernized trade agreement for the 21st Century: the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). USMCA will give our workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses a high-standard trade agreement that will result in freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in our region. It will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.
“We look forward to further deepening our close economic ties when this new agreement enters into force.
“We would like to thank Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo for his close collaboration over the past 13 months.”
