WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement that negotiators from the United States, Canada and Mexico have reached a new trade accord.
“The announcement that a trade agreement has been reached with Canada and Mexico is very promising news and creates a sense of certainty for Arkansas’s manufacturers, small businesses and agriculture industry. Our neighbors to the north and south are our natural allies and trading partners, but that partnership must be mutually beneficial. I am pleased that Canada and Mexico came to the negotiating table, and together we were able to come to an agreement.
America can compete with any nation in the world when the playing field is level. I welcome this announcement and look forward to reviewing the details of the agreement in depth to ensure it can achieve that goal.”
