    Arrow Trump Secures A Modern, Rebalanced Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico

    While the fascist Democrats were destroying an innocent man so that they could continue to murder babies, Trump was continuing to do things to make this great economy even greater:

    President Donald J. Trump Secures A Modern, Rebalanced Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico
    source link

    USMCA is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our farmers and manufacturers, reduces trade barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world.
    President Donald J. Trump

    DELIVERING AS PROMISED: President Donald J. Trump is keeping his promise to deliver a modern and rebalanced trade deal with Mexico and Canada.


    President Trump has negotiated a new United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), which will benefit American workers and businesses where North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has failed.

    For years, politicians have called for the renegotiation of NAFTA, but President Trump is following through where others have failed.

    This new agreement will update and rebalance the 24-year-old NAFTA with modern provisions to serve the interests of American workers and businesses.

    BENEFITTING BUSINESSES, FARMERS, AND WORKERS: President Trump has secured a number of wins for American businesses and workers in USMCA.

    The Administration worked closely with partners to create a better deal that advances the interests of American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses.

    American auto manufacturers and workers will benefit from new rules of origin requiring 75 percent of auto content to be produced in North America.

    The new agreement will incentivize billions of dollars in additional United States vehicle and auto parts production.

    Workers will also benefit from rules that will incentivize the use of high-wage manufacturing labor in the auto sector, supporting better jobs for American workers.

    USMCA’s labor chapter represents the strongest labor provisions of any trade agreement.

    USMCA’s labor chapter is a core part of the agreement and will make the labor provisions fully enforceable.

    USMCA is a win for American farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness as it includes important improvements that will enable food and agriculture to trade more fairly.

    Canada will eliminate its “Class 7” program that allows low-priced dairy ingredients to undersell American dairy products.

    Canada will provide new access for American dairy products, eggs, and poultry.

    MODERNIZING OUR TRADE RELATIONSHIP: USMCA will bring our trade relationship with Canada and Mexico into the 21st century.

    NAFTA failed to keep up with the United States’ changing economy.

    For years, NAFTA rules have helped incentivize offshoring, leading many manufacturing jobs to leave the United States.

    The new agreement includes a modernized, high-standard chapter that provides strong protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.

    This includes 10 years of data protection for biologic drugs and a large scope of products eligible for protection.

    USMCA contains the strongest measures on digital trade of any agreement.

    This includes rules to ensure data can be transferred cross-border and to minimize limits on where data can be stored.

    U.S. reaches trade deal with Canada and Mexico, providing Trump a crucial win

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...-canada-819081

    "The new pact is a major step toward completing one of the president's signature campaign promises."

    Trade ministers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night.

    The new pact, which is being called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, is a major step toward completing one of Trump’s signature campaign promises and gives the president a concrete policy win to tout on the campaign trail this fall. It also sets the stage for what is sure to be a high-stakes fight to get the agreement passed by Congress before it can become law.

    The Trump administration already formally notified Congress at the end of August of its plans to sign a new pact and faced a deadline of the end of September to provide a draft of the agreement.

    U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in late August that officials are planning to sign with their Canadian and Mexican counterparts by the end of November — a date that would also satisfy Mexico, which is eager to have current President Enrique Peña Nieto sign the deal before his successor takes over Dec. 1.

    “It’s a great win for the president and a validation for his strategy in the area of international trade,” a senior administration official said on a call with reporters late Sunday.

    People briefed on the outlines of a revamped deal described changes in language governing dairy imports, dispute resolution between countries, limits on online shopping that can be done tax free, and limits on the U.S. threat of auto tariffs.

    “It’s a good day for Canada,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said as he left the office late Sunday night. He said he would save other comments for an official announcement on Monday.
