The North American Free Trade Agreement among the United States, Canada, and Mexico entered into force on January 1, 1994, creating the world's largest free trade area. Since NAFTA's implementation, trade between the United States and its NAFTA partners has soared. Canada and Mexico consistently rank among the top markets for U.S. food and agricultural products.

In September 2018, the United States reached an agreement with Mexico and Canada in the renegotiation of NAFTA. Information about the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is available here.
