Washington, D.C. — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, welcomed today’s announcement by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) that the U.S., Canada, and Mexico have reached an agreement to end section 232 tariffs on aluminum and steel, an important step towards passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

"We have cleared another significant hurdle on the way to passing the USMCA.  We urge Congress to come together and ratify this worthy deal that would bring America’s trade relationship with our friends to the north and south into the 21st century.
