Usmca Agreement Overview

The new chapter on digital trade contains the strongest disciplines on digital trade of any international agreement and provides a solid foundation for expanding trade and investment in innovative products and services, for which the United States has a competitive advantage. The Environment Chapter contains the most enforceable environmental obligations of all previous U.S. agreements, including commitments to combat trade in wildlife, timber, and fish; strengthen law enforcement networks to curb trafficking in human beings; and address pressing environmental issues such as air quality and marine litter. The United States, Mexico and Canada have reached an agreement to modernize the 25-year-old NAFTA into a high-level agreement of the twenty-first century. .
