Us Mexico Agreement

Posted on April 14th, 2021

On June 1, 2020, USTR Robert Lighthizer`s office released the uniform rules, which are the final hurdle before the agreement is implemented on July 1, 2020. On May 30, ustr.gov/trade-agreements/free-trade-agreements/united-states-mexico-canada-agreement/uniform-regulations U.S. Trade Agent Robert E. Lighthizer presented To Congress a draft declaration on the administrative measures necessary to implement the U.S.-Mexico agreement (USMCA and the new NAFTA), pursuant to the Presidential Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) Act 2015 (Declaration of Administrative Action). The project will allow congress to be presented to Congress, after 30 days, on June 29, a law to implement the USMCA. In a letter [73] to Nancy Pelosi, House of Representatives spokeswoman, and Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, the Republican, told Lighthizer that the USMCA was the gold standard in U.S. trade policy, modernizing the competitive trade in digital, intellectual property and services in the United States, and creating a level playing field for U.S. businesses, workers and farmers, an agreement that represents a fundamental shift in trade relations between Mexico and Mexico. The Trump administration`s office proposed the USMCA citing new measures for digital commerce, strengthening the protection of trade secrets and adapting the rules of origin of automobiles among the benefits of the trade agreement.

But in fact, there are two reasons why the FDA is closely following trade policy: protecting our rules and authorities and using trade agreements as a vehicle to promote public health.

An April 2019 Analysis by the International Trade Commission on the likely effects of the USMCA estimated that the agreement would increase U.S. real GDP by 0.35 percent if the agreement were fully implemented (six years after ratification) and would increase total U.S. employment by 0.12% (176,000 jobs). [114] [115] The analysis cited by another Congressional Research Service study showed that the agreement would not have a measurable effect on employment, wages or overall economic growth. [114] In the summer of 2019, Larry Kudlow, Trump`s chief economic adviser (the director of the National Economic Council at Trump White House), made unfounded statements about the likely economic impact of the agreement and overstated forecasts related to jobs and GDP growth. [114] On December 9, 2019, Fox News reported that negotiators from the three countries reached an agreement on enforcement, paving the way for a final agreement within 24 hours and ratification by all three parties before the end of the year.
