Wednesday, October 3, 2018

The National Retail Federation issued the following statement from president and CEO Matthew Shay after the U.S., Canada, and Mexico reached a deal updating the North American Free Trade Agreement.

“We are pleased a deal has been reached that preserves NAFTA’s trilateral framework, which is critical to protecting North American supply chains that support millions of American jobs. The administration, as well as officials from Canada and Mexico, should be applauded for months of hard work aimed at modernizing NAFTA for the 21st century – a goal retailers have shared from the start. We will carefully review all the details of the agreement to ensure it promotes U.S. economic growth and maintains access to the products American families need at the prices they can afford.”
