DES MOINES, IOWA (January 29, 2020) — Governor Kim Reynolds released the following statement following President Trump signing the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) at the White House:
“President Trump successfully negotiated a strong, balanced, and reciprocal trade agreement that will benefit Iowa and the entire nation. Years from now, USMCA will prove to be a major boost to Iowa’s economy, especially for families, farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses.
“Mexico and Canada are Iowa's top-two trading-partners, serving as a key market for our products. This agreement, along with phase-1 deals reached with China and Japan, will expand markets for Iowa producers.
“I want to thank President Trump, Ambassador [Robert] Lighthizer, and the entire administration for securing this critical trade agreement.”
