Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers applaud deal to approve United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers applaud deal to approve United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the country would support the amended trade deal and representatives of his government would sign it Tuesday.

"Farmers here in the United States need every access that we can find right now to help ease the burden that we're going through right now on the American farm, with low prices and the trade wars going on", Aistrope said.

In a press conference on Tuesday, December 10, Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the US House of Representatives, said the agreement will not include an earlier proposition which would have given pharmaceutical companies ten-years of market exclusivity for biologics in both Canada and Mexico.

Lamb said the updated agreement will bring Mexican wages closer to those paid in the US, thanks to improved labor standards and stronger enforcement mechanisms, though he acknowledged that some argue the agreement should go farther to prevent employers from moving jobs to Mexico.

The new agreement includes provisions for digital trade and incentives that could shift some automotive manufacturing from Mexico to the USA or Canada.

Democrats in Congress have reached a deal with the White House to approve a new North American trade pact.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi surely had a busy morning. He said the agreement that President Trump initially negotiated to replace NAFTA wasn't much better.

U.S. President Donald Trump also hailed the deal. "Good for everybody - Farmers, Manufacturers, Energy, Union - tremendous support", he tweeted.

Asked about the substance of the new trilateral trade deal, McConnell said, "from my perspective, it's not as good as I had hoped".

Heyman's one-time counterpart - former Canadian ambassador to the U.S. David MacNaughton - also praised the deal, particularly as it related to Canada's steel and aluminum industries.

U.S. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal said sections of the text would be reviewed by lawmakers, but he saw no reason for "unnecessary delays" in bringing the trade pact to a vote on the House floor.

But the deal still had to be ratified by all three players, and congressional Democrats in Washington had been unwilling to move forward until now.

She was working on the language of separate legislation on how the deal would be implemented, she said.

A U.S. House vote is likely before Congress adjourns for the year and the Senate is likely to vote in January or February.
