Abstract

The changes in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) for the textiles, apparel, and agriculture sectors are relatively minor, although they reflect somewhat greater protectionism, particularly with textiles and apparel. In terms of the agriculture industry, the USMCA modestly liberalizes U.S. dairy market access to Canada, and U.S. wine growers receive greater access to Canadian markets. Wine and cheese exporters to Mexico also receive significant protection from limitations on the use of common geographical indications in Mexico as a result of Mexican negotiations with the European Union (E.U.) on a revised free trade agreement.

Keywords: USMC, NAFTA textiles and apparel, agricultural trade, geographical limitations, wine
