Senator David Perdue Comments On U.S. Trade Deal With Mexico & Canada

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the United States’ new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada:

“President Trump is keeping his promise to achieve better trade deals for America. Our economy has changed significantly since NAFTA was signed 24 years ago, and I saw that first-hand living and working around the world. It is encouraging that the Trump Administration succeeded in bringing both Mexico and Canada to the negotiating table. This new trade agreement will help reset the dialogue with two of our closest allies and strongest trading partners to provide more equal access into those markets. As we review the details, I will continue working closely with the President and his team to make sure this is the best deal for our manufacturers, agriculture producers, and all workers in Georgia and across the country.”
