Congressional passage of the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) will help manufacturers grow in the United States, compete globally and support millions of well-paying manufacturing jobs across the country. The continued success of U.S. manufacturing depends on our critical North American partnerships.
- Canada and Mexico alone purchase one-fifth of the total value of U.S. manufacturing output.
- Canada and Mexico purchase more U.S.-made goods than our next 10 trading partners combined despite representing only 6% of the world’s population.
- The jobs of more than two million American manufacturing workers depend on exports to Canada and Mexico, along with more than 43,000 small and medium-sized businesses.
