The National Cotton Council (NCC) has applauded President Trump’s signing of the Congressionally-approved US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). NCC Chairman Mike Tate said USMCA will provide a boost in trade certainty for US cotton and cotton textile products in the North American market. USMCA updates and modifies the North American Free Trade Agreement. Mexico is the second largest export market for US cotton textile/apparel products, while Canada is the fourth largest for these goods. Mexico is also a top market for US raw cotton.
