U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)

Canada and Mexico are the United States’ top agricultural export markets, totaling a combined $40 billion in 2018. In fact, more than 28 percent of all U.S. farm and food exports went to our North American neighbors last year, supporting well over 300,000 American jobs. The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, will make a good trade relationship even better, ensuring preferential market access for U.S. farm and food products and solidifying commitments to fair and science-based trade rules.

In September 2018, the United States reached an agreement with Mexico and Canada in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). When finalized and implemented, the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will further strengthen the United States’ highly productive and integrated agricultural relationship with its North American partners, ensuring preferential market access for U.S. exporters and solidifying commitments to fair and science-based trade rules.
