With the surprising win of Donald Trump last week, many questions have been circling about what this means for Canada and Mexico. With this in mind, Jeffrey Phillips and Anna Barrera were interviewed by Isabel Inclán of NOTIMEX to discuss where North America should go from here. According to Phillips “It is too early to know what will happen with NAFTA. We are hopeful that once the dust settles, there will be a gap between the anti-trade rhetoric of the campaign trail and the realities of day-to-day governing.”
The United States and Canada share the world’s largest and most comprehensive trading relationship, and the numbers tell it all. Each and every day, 400,000 people cross the border, along with over $2 billion worth of goods and services. Of course, the United States is more than just an important trading partner for Canada: our two countries share many common values and interests, forged together by a shared geography.
“It is important for the President-Elect to see that having a good relationship with Mexico and Canada is beneficial to all, working together on topics of climate change, commerce, and energy,” said Anna Barrera during the interview.
