U.S., Canada Trade Officials Wanting to Move Forward with USMCA

The U.S. and Canada are discussing the next steps for approving the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement that will replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer visited Canada this week meeting with his Canadian counterpart, Chrystia Freeland. The countries expect to sign the agreement by November 30th, when Mexico’s incoming president takes office, but lawmakers from all three nations would need to approve the trade pact.

Once in place, USMCA promises increased market share to Canada for U.S. dairy.
