July 1 will mark the first year anniversary of the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The COVID-19 pandemic made the implementation of the USMCA more challenging than previously hoped. However, this past year also highlighted the critical need for collaboration among the United States, Mexico, and Canada to implement the USMCA; a key component of the North American partnership.

As we approached the first anniversary of the USMCA, the Wilson Center's Mexico and Canada Institutes hosted a conversation with the trade ministers from the United States, Mexico, and Canada. This event focused on the biggest lessons learned from the first year of USMCA, as well as on the top priorities for North American collaboration in the years ahead.
