The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) modernizes the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to meet the needs of a 21st century economy, ensuring the U.S. remains an attractive place to do business. 

Quick Facts

Entering the USMCA would deliver for the travel industry and America’s economy as a whole. For the travel industry alone, USMCA would raise an estimated $1.7 billion in travel-generated economic output and create 15,000 American jobs.

USMCA would allow for the continued growth in U.S. exports—including travel, America’s second largest export—and should be swiftly implemented.
