Virtual Conversation on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement
The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico in San Diego, U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana, and the Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles will host a webinar on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to discuss the treaty’s benefits and economic opportunities for our binational region. The virtual discussion will take place Tuesday, June 30th, from 10:00 to 11:30am. Participant instructions will be sent upon registration. Please note that this event is closed to media.
Starting July 1st, USMCA will govern more than $1.3 trillion worth of trade within North America. The new agreement includes several updated chapters from the original North American Trade Agreement and improves provisions in others. Trade agreements such as NAFTA have helped create a thriving binational economy in our region, with a co-producing manufacturing supply chain that accounts for $2.5 billion in trade between San Diego and Baja California. After Mexico, Canada is the second largest consumer of San Diego’s goods and services. We are not just trading partners, we are producing together.
