For more than two decades NAFTA has helped to drive the economic growth and prosperity of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Businesses in all three countries have benefited from the free flow of goods and services across our borders. Unfortunately, new U.S. tariffs are hurting businesses in both countries and uncertainty around the future of NAFTA is already having an impact on investment and trade across the continent.
Now, more than ever before, we need a consistent, strong voice making the case for freer trade, which is why the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is rallying the business community through its Coalition to Keep Trade Free.
Our objectives are simple:
· Advocating for freer trade within North America and around the world; and
· Building the case for a modernized NAFTA that will grow all three economies and make us globally competitive.
To achieve these goals, Coalition members are leveraging the network that each brings to inform their business counterparts of the importance of maintaining our strong trade relationship. We must address the unprecedented threats facing North American businesses in order to #KeepTradeFree.
