HOUSTON (Jan. 29, 2020) - Statement by Bob Harvey, president & CEO of the Greater Houston Partnership, on the signing of the new trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada:
“We are pleased by the news that President Trump has signed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. As the largest business organization in Houston, we strongly support USMCA and free and fair international trade more broadly. We look forward to the agreement’s ratification by Canada and its implementation.”
“Canada and Mexico have been two of Houston’s most important trading partners for more than 20 years, and USMCA is critical to strengthening that relationship. Mexico, in particular, stands out as our number one international trading partner."
“As a global logistics hub and top-export metro, Houston is uniquely positioned to benefit from the agreement. We applaud the administration and the Texas Congressional delegation for their support of USMCA, which will help ensure Houston’s continued economic growth.”
