Abstract

This report discusses several provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that in large part have been carried over to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). In some instances, significant changes have been made to the NAFTA provisions that have found their way into the USMCA. For example, a considerable change was made with the addition of pharmaceutical industry-related provisions to the more generally applicable provisions for publication and administration. Other aspects of the USMCA discussed in this report include regulations for government procurement, trade remedies, temporary entry for business visitors, and general exceptions or limitations.

Keywords: NAFTA, USMCA, government procurement, trade remedies, business visitors
