As you know, the United States, Mexico and Canada have renegotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The new agreement is called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement or USMCA. It was signed by the three countries Sept. 30, 2018. It has been ratified by Mexico. The United States Congress has not ratified it yet.

According to the U.S. Trade Representative, there are a number of significant provisions.
