Chamber Welcomes Senate Passage of USMCA
The North Country Chamber of Commerce is welcoming today's bi-partisan approval of the USMCA (U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement) by the United States Senate, following similar approval by the House of Representatives last month.
"Nothing is more broadly and deeply important to the economy of the North Country than our multi-faceted and growing economic partnership with Canada," states Garry Douglas, Chamber President. "Full Congressional approval of USMCA both preserves and enhances that partnership, bringing needed stability and predictability to cross border commerce and investment of all kinds."
Douglas reports that, "Interest from Canada in growing business in the U.S. via the North Country has never been stronger, with the one potential threat having been any derailing of USMCA for any reason. Having this positive action behind us will allow and encourage continued economic collaboration on all levels, and that's good news for the entire North Country region."
