(State Capitol, Phoenix) - Senator Vince Leach applauds President Donald J. Trump for signing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) today.
Last year, Senator Leach sponsored Senate Memorial 1002 to urge the United States Congress to ratify the USMCA Agreement. Arizona does significant exporting which drive our economy. Just in 2017, the State of Arizona sent $2.2 billion in exports to Canada and $7.5 billion to Mexico. Also, due to the geographical position of our state, modernized ports of entry, improved access roads and outstanding cooperation with our counterparts in Mexico, Arizona is well-positioned for continued trade growth under USMCA.
"I am delighted to see that our President has signed the USMCA today," said Senator Leach. " The USMCA is extremely beneficial for the economy of Arizona, and I am looking forward to seeing our state reap the benefits of this agreement."
"This is a colossal victory for our farmers, ranchers, energy workers, factory workers, and American workers in all 50 states", said President Trump at the press conference this morning.
The new USMCA will support mutually beneficial trade leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth in North America.
