TechNet Comments On U.S.-Mexico NAFTA Announcement

Washington, D.C. — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, commented on today’s announcement by the U.S. and Mexico that they have reached a preliminary agreement on several bilateral trade issues.  The following statement can be attributed to Linda Moore, President and CEO of TechNet:

"Since last year, we have viewed the NAFTA negotiations as an opportunity to modernize the deal with strong digital trade and pro-innovation rules, and have repeatedly cautioned against the devastating economic impact abandoning it would have on the U.S.  Ending the negotiating stalemate with Mexico is a step forward, and we will be reviewing the details of this pact closely in the coming days.  More work remains to be done, and we urge both nations and Canada to keep working on a final NAFTA deal."
