New trade agreement a win for Montana agriculture

New trade agreement a win for Montana agriculture

If Trump makes good on his threat, congress would need to pass the USMCA within six months; failure to act could lead to the cancellation of both agreements, impacting free trade between the three countries.

"In the United States the new trade pact will support high-paying manufacturing jobs and promote greater access for American exports across the range of sectors including our farming, manufacturing, and service industries", Trump said.

National Cattlemen's beef Association (NCBA) President Kevin Kester issued a statement in response to the signing of the USMCA, in which he said, "With the signing of the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), US beef producers are one step closer to knowing that unrestricted, science-based trade will continue in North America". "Congress will have a choice of the USMCA or pre-NAFTA, which worked very well".

Meanwhile, a number of lawmakers and business groups are trying to push for the removal of USA tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Mexico, which have inflicted harm upon American manufacturers and consumers, raising costs for a wide array of industries.

At a separate event in New York, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Canada takes seriously comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump about withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement, the older treaty the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is to replace.

Trade experts have long suspected Trump, who has made beating up on NAFTA a central feature of his political career, might play the termination card in an effort to light a fire under the deal's critics. The deal has to be ratified before it can take effect.

"I think they're betting on Congress not letting it all go to hell", she said.

Not even all Republicans in Congress are on board just yet.

It will require approval from each country's legislature, and in the U.S., Democrats in Congress, in particular, have voiced concerns about its labor and environmental protections.

Business Roundtable, an influential association of leading USA companies' executives, also called for a "prompt resolution" of the tariff issue between all three countries while reviewing the final text of the new trade agreement.
