Trump praises 'incredible' new trade deal with Mexico and Canada

New NAFTA reinforces Mexico's economic stability: minister

New NAFTA reinforces Mexico's economic stability: minister

Wisconsin's Grassland Dairy blamed the policy for lost sales which the processor said forced it to cut milk contracts for dozens of state farmers last spring.

The two countries are also working on an agreement that would shield Canada if Trump goes ahead with his threat to tax imported cars, truck and auto parts.

"I was excited. It was built on what exists already", said Richard Perez, president and CEO of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, after hearing about the decision.

The USMCA gained the USA greater access to Canada's dairy markets by eliminating a pricing system that made it harder for us dairy farmers to enter the market, as well as raising quotas on how much us dairy can come into Canada.

Canada has made a last-minute decision to rejoin what had been the North American Free Trade Agreement, which will now be called USMCA.

"Passage of the USMCA would reduce key trade-related risks, but ongoing tensions with China remain and now loom significantly larger for the U.S. economy than those with Mexico and Canada", Fitch said.

Reuters points out that the clause, which has stirred controversy in Canada, fits in with U.S. President Donald Trump's efforts to isolate China economically and prevent Chinese companies from using Canada or Mexico as a "back door" to ship products tariff-free to the United States. "I've always felt that this would be a trade coalition of the willing to send a message to China that they've got to shape up and start behaving like a citizen in the new world of trading", Kudlow said.

Canada is linked again with the US and Mexico in a revamped North American free trade deal after weeks of negotiations.

The flags of Canada, Mexico and the USA are seen on a lectern before a joint news conference on the closing of the seventh round of NAFTA talks in Mexico City on March 5.

O'Connor said the USA needs an incentive for individual farmers not to overproduce, much like Canada's quota system.

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, speaks during a news conference at U.N. headquarters during the General Assembly of the United Nations in Manhattan, New York, U.S., September 26, 2018.

It is expected that the agreement will be signed by President Trump and his Canadian and Mexican counterparts on November 30. "We've been able to come to an agreement that creates more stability and a greater level of confidence in the business community, confidence in making investments in Canada and as well investments in the other North American economies". Congress then has to approve the deal, which is likely to be up for a vote next year. "Getting closer to having good trade relations is important, even though this agreement doesn't touch the steel and aluminum agreements". Still, for both labor and environment standards set out in the new accord, labor unions and other groups said it was unclear whether the provisions had strong enforcement rules tied to them.
