600 Business Groups Sign USMCA Letter
   

Urges Congress to Support the Trade Deal

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and more than 600 business and agriculture associations and chambers of commerce sent a letter to Capitol Hill today urging members to support USMCA.

The 600+ signatories represent business groups in all 50 states and more than 30 different industries, ranging from aerospace and automotive to tech and tourism. The group writes:

"More than 12 million American jobs depend on trade with Canada and Mexico. U.S. manufacturers export more made-in-America manufactured goods to our North American neighbors than they do to the next 11 largest export markets combined, and the two countries account for nearly one-third of U.S. agricultural exports. They are also the top two export destinations for U.S. small and medium-size businesses, more than 120,000 of which sell their goods and services to Canada and Mexico."

The full letter, including a list of those that signed on, can be found here.
