WASHINGTON — Today, ITI applauded the signing of legislation implementing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in the United States, and issued the following statement from its President and CEO Jason Oxman after he attended the signing ceremony held today at the White House:

“The signing of the bipartisan USMCA represents a significant step forward for U.S. leadership in innovation and digital trade and sets a global precedent for modern, rules-based trade. Its first-of-its-kind, cutting-edge digital trade provisions recognize the reality of the 21st century economy and provide certainty and predictability to businesses across all sectors in North America and beyond. Importantly, the pact boosts the U.S. economy and competitiveness globally while preserving and strengthening the United States’ economic relationship with Canada and Mexico—two of its largest trading partners. We urge Canada to ratify this agreement soon and remain committed to seeing all three countries implement the agreement’s provisions to ensure that the North American economy can reap the benefits of this high-standard agreement going forward.”

ITI has been a leading voice for the tech industry in the USMCA negotiations:
