Canadians duty-free limit increases to $150 following USMCA deal

So Much Winning We Have A New NAFTA Deal

Late on Sunday, the United States and Canada reached a deal to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), complementing an accord the Trump administration brokered with Mexico, the third member of NAFTA, in late August.

In this June 8, 2018, photo, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with U.S. President Donald Trump at the G7 leaders summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

Dr. Andrew Solocha, professor of International Finance at the University of Toledo says, "If they impose a tariff on cars like Trump has proposed, that will mean they have to build their cars here".

Almost every major automaker builds cars in Mexico, including some European luxury brands.

"We are sending China a message, and I hope they are listening".

"But, there is also no question that now that we have moved forward on a USMCA, we will continue to work on things that benefit our workers, benefit our citizens and take on the world together as a North American market", he said.

He has struck out 33 batters and given up 23 hits in 37.1 innings of work, and has held Milwaukee to a paltry.177 batting average. The Brewers will host the victor of Tuesday's NL wild card game in the NL Division Series.

Jay Gordon, policy director at the Washington State Dairy Federation, said the new trade agreement would help resolve previous pricing uncertainty facing dairy farmers when tariffs were imposed earlier this year. The deal then would have to be approved by Congress.

The Trump administration has often lamented the high prices of pharmaceuticals in the US, and in July began its broad initiative to reduce prescription drug costs, first laid out in a blueprint in mid-May. "There are really no poison pills in here for Democrats". Also, two of NAFTA's three original multiparty trade dispute resolution processes will remain in place (which is good for future intra-North American relations).

Gordon said there could be a slight increase in market access to Canada for US dairy products, and the removal of that nation's Class 7 system pricing could lessen impact on the USA and world markets.

"They told me they have continued to give in trade deals".

The metal tariffs discussions are on a "completely separate track", according to a senior US official.

Canada was brought back into the fold after weeks of negotiations, with a deal announced shortly before a midnight deadline.

Trade pact gives local farmers wary optimism
Aside from the concessions affecting the dairy industry, Angus said he liked how Canada maintained Chapter 19 and 20 provisions. South Korea bought $6.9 billion worth of US agricultural goods previous year , making it our sixth-largest export market.

The new deal was "terrific" for all three countries, he added.

Otero also said there are still a number of questions that need to be answered, including how USA dairy farmers, who allow growth hormones that have been banned in Canada, will compete in Canada.

"There is clearly an opportunity to constructively engage the United States between the achievement of a deal in principle and the ratification or signature of that deal", he said.

Desjardins Group, another major financial institution based in Quebec, also pledged its support for dairy and poultry producers and processors.

The new trade agreement, Trump asserted, would usher in a new dawn for the country's auto industry and transform North America into a manufacturing powerhouse and allow the USA to reclaim the supply chain that went out off-shores. The agreement carves out quotas for both nations to export vehicles and parts to the US duty-free.

Manchester United vs Valencia, Champions League
United lost 3-1 over the weekend to West Ham , falling to 10th in the Premier League with 10 points in their first seven games. But the United manager has come out in support of his players ahead of the Champions League tie against Valencia.
