DES MOINES –  Today, Gov. 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 Lighthizer, and the entire administration for securing this critical trade agreement.”
