WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 4, 2018) — ACTION for Trade executive director, Brian Pomper, issued the following statement on the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement:
“ACTION for Trade applauds President Donald Trump, President Enrique Pena Nieto, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for signing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
“Intellectual property protection is particularly important, as America’s IP-intensive industries account for 38 percent of U.S. GDP, generating $6.6 trillion in annual economic activity and supporting nearly 58 million American jobs. By boosting many of the IP standards, USMCA will help ensure that the United States continues to lead in innovation.
“ACTION looks forward to working with Congress and the Trump Administration on plans to implement and enforce the agreement.”
