WASHINGTON – ITI President and CEO Dean Garfield released the following statement on the announcement of a trilateral deal to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA):

“Today’s trilateral agreement is a significant step toward creating a foundation for North America’s economic prosperity for years to come. While we are still reviewing text, we’re encouraged this plan will build upon the prior economic success of NAFTA and adapt it to the fundamentally digital economy in which we live through new rules on digital trade, intellectual property, and trade in goods. We understand and appreciate that negotiators have taken their time to secure strong provisions in this agreement that will greatly advance digital trade in North America, enabling companies across industries to hire more workers, innovate more products and grow the economies in their communities.”
