Doug Ducey on Free Trade

 

 


USMCA: new trade deal with Mexico means jobs in Arizona

Arizona's economy is booming. There's no doubt about it. We've added nearly 300,000 new jobs in the last four years.

And I'm proud to say, our relationship with Mexico is stronger than ever. With an updated North American trade deal, known as the USMCA, this will mean even more trade coming through our ports and more jobs for Arizonans.

I've become fond of saying that the last time unemployment was this low, you were renting your movies at Blockbuster.

Mexican border represents opportunity for increased trade

Arizona shares an international border with one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, Mexico. This represents a unique opportunity for Arizona businesses and workers to benefit from increased trade, capital investment, and job expansion.

That's why last month, I led a delegation of roughly 50 Arizona business and public policy leaders, representing key industries and economic development groups in our state, to Mexico City. There we began a dialogue about enhancing our economic partnerships with our friends on the other side of our international border.

It was the first gubernatorial-led trade mission to Mexico City in almost a decade, and I'm hopeful it will provide major economic benefits over the long-term for Arizona.

Already, Mexico is Arizona's largest international trading partner. We just hit a record of $15.9 billion in trade with the country. That's nearly as much as Mexico trades with Germany.
