John Weekes appeared live on BNN Bloomberg to discuss the just-announced United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on trade. John said the announced deal will help remove the cloud of uncertainty hanging over the Canadian economy—negotiations to update the NAFTA began in August 2017.
John also spoke about:
- section 232 side letters in the USMCA
- U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs still remain
- the non-market economy clause
- the benefits of digital trade, customs and trade facilitation, and anticorruption being modernized for the 21st century
