NAFTA

Pacific Nations Leave the U.S. in the Rear-View Mirror on Trade

The contrast could not be greater: the president of the United States signs an order to impose new tariffs on steel and aluminum, which threatens partners and allies, on the same day that the 11 remaining partners of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) sign an agreement to expand trade and establish improved rules governing trade.

Severing NAFTA Ties Harms Much More Than Trade

U.S. ties with Mexico and Canada touch the daily lives of more Americans than ties with any other two countries in the world.

Now is the time to forge as much agreement as possible before elections in Mexico (July presidential and congressional elections) and the U.S. (November congressional elections) close the political space for agreement.

That’s still cold comfort at a time when anxieties about major disruptions in international trading patterns being one of the biggest risks to disrupt growth remain strong.
