TechNet Hails Mexican Congress’ Action As Key Step Forward To Passing USMCA
Washington, D.C. — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today applauded the Mexican Congress’ passage of labor reform legislation, an important step towards passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Mexico has taken an important step forward, and we commend its leaders for their commitment to making this deal a reality,” said TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore. “It is long past time to bring America’s trade relationship with our friends to the north and south into the 21st century, which the USMCA would accomplish.
“The USMCA’s strong rules to promote market access, boost digital trade, protect intellectual property, and encourage the free flow of data across borders will help American businesses of all sizes grow and create new economic opportunities for our entrepreneurs and workers,” Moore added. “We appreciate Ambassador Lighthizer’s commitment to getting this deal ratified and urge Congress to come together and pass the USMCA this year.”
In December 2018, TechNet submitted official comments to the U.S. International Trade Commission in support of the USMCA, highlighting the economic benefits of the deal. That letter can be viewed here.
