Don’t underestimate USMCA changes
The good news about the replacement for NAFTA is that it finally gives us certainty around North American trade after more than three years spent hanging on the next round of talks or speculation. It’s a deal that will bring investment back to the region and provide some much-needed stability.
The bad news is that companies’ level of awareness about the deal and their preparedness for its implementation on July 1 is worryingly low. A surprising number of companies are thinking about the deal as “NAFTA 2.0,” little more than a spruced-up version of the old agreement.
