Cicuta News - Internacional - 25/04/2020

En Estados Unidos, la oficina del representante comercial notificó al Congreso de que el pacto comercial que mantiene la nación con México y Canadá entraría en vigencia el 1 de julio, un mes después de lo establecido inicialmente.

En el comunicado, Robert Lighthizer advierte que tanto México como Canadá establecieron medidas necesarias para cumplir con sus compromisos en virtud del Acuerdo Estados Unidos-México-Canadá (USMCA por sus siglas en inglés) y que reemplaza el Acuerdo de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN).

“La entrada en vigor del TMEC marca el inicio de un nuevo capítulo histórico para el comercio en América del Norte”, se lee en parte del comunicado emitido el viernes 24 de abril.

De acuerdo con la oficina comercial estadounidense, el nuevo acuerdo presenta mejoras significativas y enfoques modernizados en torno a acceso a los mercados agrícolas, propiedad intelectual, comercio digital, servicios financieros, mano de obra, entre otros.

USMCA To Enter Into Force July 1 After United States Takes Final Procedural Steps For Implementation

04/24/2020


Washington, DC – U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer today notified Congress that Canada and Mexico have taken measures necessary to comply with their commitments under the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), and that the Agreement will enter into force on July 1, 2020. Following that notification to Congress, the United States became the third country to notify the other Parties that it had completed its domestic procedures to implement the agreement—the final step necessary for the USMCA to enter into force.


The USMCA’s entry into force marks the beginning of a historic new chapter for North American trade by supporting more balanced, reciprocal trade, leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth in North America. The Agreement contains significant improvements and modernized approaches to rules of origin, agricultural market access, intellectual property, digital trade, financial services, labor, and numerous other sectors.


These enhancements will deliver more jobs, provide stronger labor protections, and expand market access, creating new opportunities for American workers, farmers, and ranchers.


“The crisis and recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrates that now, more than ever, the United States should strive to increase manufacturing capacity and investment in North America. The USMCA’s entry into force is a landmark achievement in that effort. Under President Trump’s leadership, USTR will continue working to ensure a smooth implementation of the USMCA so that American workers and businesses can enjoy the benefits of the new agreement,” said Ambassador Robert Lighthizer.
