Today, July 1, 2020, the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) officially went into effect. The USMCA replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
The federal government also chose members of the Rapid Response Labor Mechanism, which enforces USMCA labor protections.
“The United States, Mexico and Canada must continue working together to ensure that the USMCA is implemented in a way that will bolster that recovery and renewal and maintain broad support for open, rules-based North American trade—this year, next year and well into the future. The stakes have never been higher,” said NAM president Jay Timmons in a statement.
