USMCA agreement turns 2 with issues to resolve


As the United States, Canada, and Mexico celebrated the second anniversary of the USMCA trade agreement, U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai was discussing work that still needs to be done under that agreement.

In a Friday statement, Tai stressed the importance of Canada fully meeting its USMCA commitments, including its allocation of dairy tariff-rate quotas, home-shopping, and that American softwood lumber producers can compete on a level playing field without product dumping.

Tai has already started a second resolution process against Canada for failing to release dairy TRQ’s to allow American dairy products on Canadian store shelves.
