USMCA / NAFTA

In one of his first acts after taking office, President Trump called for a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico, which took effect January 1, 1994. On November 30, 2018, Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, and Mexican President Peña Nieto signed the new United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) to replace NAFTA. All three countries' legislatures must ratify the agreement before it takes effect.

PIIE has conducted extensive research on NAFTA’s costs and benefits, and on the perils and opportunities presented by the new USMCA.
