U.S. Senate Finance Committee encourages U.S. Trade Representative to more aggressively enforce USMCA

Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Ranking Member Mike Crapo (R-ID) of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee sent a letter to USTR Ambassador Tai to encourage more aggressive enforcement of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

In the letter, Senators Wyden and Crapo write, “The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (“USMCA” or the “Agreement”) has the potential to deliver tangible benefits for America’s workers, farmers, and businesses by improving and strengthening the relationship between the United States and its two closest trading partners. However, that potential will not be realized without full implementation and enforcement of the Agreement as written.”

The letter highlights several outstanding issues where the Senators say U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Tai must “ensure that the United States gets what it bargained for” and take action.
