Premier Brain Pallister issues statement on the new trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada.
"We congratulate the federal government on achieving a tentative new trade deal with the United States and Mexico.
Manitoba deeply values its trading relationships. We have been a leader in encouraging and engaging with other jurisdictions on free trade issues.
Like other provinces and territories, Manitoba has worked to build enduring relationships at the American state level. These relationships can be critically important when we’re faced with challenges in the broader Canada-U.S. relationship. I acknowledge the work of premiers across Canada for helping to keep these relationships strong and showing leadership over the past months.
Manitobans understand the importance of free and open trade, and the opportunities it brings to businesses and communities in our province.
We look forward to reviewing the details of the agreement."
