A coalition of hundreds of national, state, and municipal business organizations and chambers of commerce — including the Greater Albuquerque Chamber and the United States Chamber of Commerce — have signed onto an open letter asking Congress to ratify the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement (USMCA). An estimated 63,000 jobs in the state and approximately $2 billion in exports from New Mexico rely on trade with Mexico in industries from manufacturing to agriculture.

“Free trade with our neighbors is important to the country’s economy, and especially to New Mexico and the greater Albuquerque area,” said Chamber President and CEO Terri Cole. “It is important that this agreement be approved to secure those jobs and keep business moving in our state.”

The letter from the coalition argues that the new trade agreement “is critical to our economic future because it will preserve and strengthen U.S. trade ties” and notes that more than 12 million American jobs depend on trade with Canada Mexico.
