Statement by Canadian American Business Council CEO Maryscott Greenwood on recent Canada/U.S. trade developments

Canadian American Business Council

“Now is a good time to update NAFTA. However, it is important to understand that neither dairy nor lumber are covered by the NAFTA. The fact that these two protected sectors are the subject of bilateral disputes in recent weeks is not evidence that NAFTA is failing.”

“We believe that trade and open markets are the cornerstone of the prosperous integrated economy that Canada and the US enjoy. We hope that all the various sectoral challenges and opportunities presented by the modern economy will be negotiated in an atmosphere of goodwill and collaboration that characterized the longstanding partnership that Canada and the US exemplify.”

“We look forward to the negotiations and plan to play a constructive role in what promises to be a robust dialogue.”
