Wyden Statement on Economic Analysis of NAFTA Update

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on the International Trade Commission’s economic analysis of the updated NAFTA trade deal:

“This report confirms what has been clear since this deal was announced – Donald Trump’s NAFTA represents at best a minor update to NAFTA, which will offer only limited benefits to U.S. workers. As I’ve said for months, the administration shouldn’t squander the opportunity to lock in real, enforceable labor standards in Mexico and fix the enforcement problems that have plagued NAFTA.”
