AIA Welcomes the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning

Arlington, Va. — The U.S. aerospace and defense industry depends on strong relationships with Mexico and Canada to build on our nearly $90 billion trade surplus, drive innovation, grow manufacturing in America, and support more than 2.5 million U.S. jobs. AIA applauds Congress and the Administration for working together on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a critical update to the North American Free Trade Agreement that will reduce uncertainty, help secure market access for goods, and modernize intellectual property, digital trade, and customs trade facilitation.
