CSI issues the following statement regarding the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) updating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)

"CSI is pleased that the NAFTA 2.0 negotiations have resulted in a trilateral agreement that includes Canada," said CSI President Christine Bliss.

"It is encouraging that the USMCA contains a number of very positive elements, including strong telecom and digital trade chapters, and a prohibition on data localization for financial services."

"We continue to review provisions of the text to determine its potential to further support the growth of services trade and investment within the North American Region."
