Invitation: USMCA Environment Committee, June 17, 2021

USTR invites all interested persons to join a public virtual session that will be hosted by the USMCA Environment Committee on June 17, 2021 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.  The Environment Committee, established under article 24.26 of the USMCA, is composed of senior government representatives from the United States, Mexico, and Canada who oversee the implementation of USMCA Chapter 24 (the environment chapter).  

During the public session, the Environment Committee will welcome questions, input, and information concerning implementation of the Chapter 24 obligations.  The moderator will pose questions to the Environment Committee from questions that were submitted to Mexico and Canada, in addition to those submitted to USTR by the June 4, 2021 deadline in response to the Federal Register notice published on May 18, 2021 (see Notice of the First United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Environment Committee Meeting, 86 Fed. Reg. 27,009).  Questions can also be raised through the live chat that will be overseen by the moderator during the public session.  We note that because the session is time-limited, it is possible that the Committee Members will not be able to address all written and live chat questions. 

When preparing questions, we encourage participants to refer to Chapter 24 of the USMCA, which you can access at: https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/files/agreements/usmca/24Environment.pdf
