WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today released the following statement regarding the trilateral agreement with Mexico and Canada in the renegotiation of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The deal must be approved by Congress before it can take effect.
“Throughout this process, I’ve always believed a trilateral agreement would best serve American businesses, particularly South Dakota’s farmers and ranchers who depend on exporting a significant share of their products to Canada and Mexico,” said Thune. “While I’m still reviewing the details of the agreement, an improved NAFTA would be good for businesses, consumers, and the economy, and I hope we can continue pursuing pro-America trade deals with other countries around the world.”
