John Weekes provides a Canadian perspective on the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) in BRINK. He looks at how the trade deal is better than NAFTA (modernizing elements for the digital age, regulatory cooperation)—and how it is not (the national security exception is weakened, new rules of origin for automobiles). John also explains:
- the Agreement’s ratification process in the three countries;
- Canada’s continued efforts to diversify our international trade;
- the need to dispel the cloud of uncertainty hanging over the conduct of business in North America; and
- the importance of reforming WTO rules.
