Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following news from the White House on a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico named the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
“President Trump has delivered on his promise to finalize a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico,” said Governor Ricketts. “The importance of this new deal to Nebraska cannot be overstated. These two countries are top customers for Nebraska, and are critical markets for growing trade opportunities. This new deal makes progress in the three areas Nebraska’s leaders outlined for trade negotiations with these countries over a year ago. Most importantly, it helps give Nebraska’s farmers and businesses much-needed certainty, and will help us grow these important trade relationships for years to come.”
