CHATTANOOGA, TN — Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement in response to USMCA, the U.S. – Mexico – Canada Trade Agreement. This agreement will update and modernize NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement:

“I have long been an outspoken advocate for free trade and I believe that a multilateral trade deal will bring the most prosperity to our farmers, workers, and business owners. In my representation of a district that relies heavily on goods and services contingent on our trade relations with Canada and Mexico, I am pleased President Trump was able to bring all parties to the table. I look forward to carefully analyzing this agreement and speaking with East Tennesseans to discuss how the proposed changes will further incentivize the foreign investment that is so lucrative to our local economy.”
