The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) among the United States, Canada, and Mexico reduced trade barriers and established agreed upon trade rules. It liberalized rules in several areas including agriculture, services, energy, financial services, investment, and government procurement. On May 18, 2017 the U.S. Administration formally notified Congress of its intent to renegotiate the NAFTA. On November 30, 2018, the United States, Mexico, and Canada signed a modernized and rebalanced trade agreement called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The new USMCA will support mutually beneficial trade leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth in North America. For more information on USMCA, please see USTR’s announcements. USMCA will enter force following legislative ratification by all three governments.
