ACTION for Trade
Oct. 18, 2018
ACTION for Trade applauds President Trump, Ambassador Lighthizer, and the staff at USTR on reaching a strong deal with Canada and Mexico to bring North American trade into the 21st century. The USMCA represents a marked improvement of many of the intellectual property protections critical to innovators in the Trans-Pacific Partnership in important ways.
Developing the next generation of treatments and cures that improves patients’ lives depends on strong intellectual property protections. In this regard, the USMCA is an historic achievement that will further cement and extend these protections, ensuring that the United States continues to be a leader in medical innovation, creating jobs, exports, and economic growth.
