To facilitate the increase in cross-border trade, the United States has reached an agreement for Mexico to increase its de minimis shipping value from $50 to $100. Transit values up to this level would arrive in Mexico without tariffs or taxes and with minimum formal entry procedures, allowing more businesses, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, to be part of cross-border trade. The United States and Mexico have agreed on the most advanced, comprehensive and normative environmental chapter of a trade agreement. Like the work chapter, the environmental chapter puts all environmental provisions at the heart of the agreement and makes them applicable. The United States and Mexico have reached an agreement to modernize NAFTA, which is 24 years old, into a high-level agreement of the 21st century. The updated agreement will support mutually beneficial trade, which will lead to freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in North America. Trump called the USMCA “the best and most important trade agreement of all time in the United States,” but it is not expected that the agreement will significantly increase trade in the region. National procedures for ratifying the agreement in the United States are governed by the legislation of the Trade Promotion Authority, which is also known as the fast-track authority. On September 30, 2018, the deadline for negotiations between Canada and the United States, an interim agreement was reached between the two countries, thus retaining the trilateral pact when the Trump administration submits the agreement to Congress. [150] The new name of the agreement was the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and came into force on July 1, 2020.

[151] [152] Under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump, the United States renegotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement and replaced it with an updated and rebalanced agreement, which works much better for North America, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which came into effect on July 1, 2020. The USMCA is a mutually beneficial benefit to workers, farmers, farmers and businesses in North America. The agreement creates more balanced and reciprocal trade that supports high-paying jobs for Americans and cultivates the North American economy. Many small U.S. companies under NAFTA depended on exporting their products to Canada or Mexico.
