Economic integration in North America has helped to remove trade barriers, spur investment, and enable our business to create more productive regional supply chains and manufacturing platforms. The United States, Mexico, and Canada have all seen clear benefits from economic integration, and North America is the most competitive economic region in the world.
While other economic regions have struggled with economic downturns and a slowdown in global trade, North America has weathered the storm and remained globally competitive, thanks in large part to each country’s unique economic assets, our collaborative ingenuity in key sectors, and our workforces. To maintain our competitive advantage, North America must invest in long-term solutions to infrastructure and workforce challenges that are acting as a brake on productivity and growth. By working together to plan strategically and engage in coordinated improvement efforts, North America will continue to benefit from economic integration and the advantages our unique model provides.
