PLI's USMCA: Insights, Perspectives and What to Expect Briefing

Date: Monday, March 30, 2020 1:00 PM - 12:00 PM

Cindy Owens and James "Jay" McCall Smith will participate in PLI's USMCA: Insights, Perspectives and What to Expect briefing call on March 30, 2020.

President Trump recently signed implementing legislation to ratify the Agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada ("USMCA"), which replaces NAFTA. The agreement passed the House and the Senate with unusual bipartisan support, and was endorsed by the AFL-CIO, the country's largest federation of unions.

Although precisely when the USMCA will enter into force is uncertain, the agreement includes several unique provisions that will be of interest to companies throughout North America, including new rules of origin for the automotive sector and new labor rights provisions that will impact companies with suppliers and/or manufacturing facilities in Mexico.

In this presentation, an overview of the following areas will be discussed:

  • Intellectual property commitments, including those omitted from the agreement
  • Automotive rules of origin, including new labor value content rules
  • Labor rights obligations and enforcement mechanisms
  • Other notable provisions and the expected economic impact on the U.S. economy
