WASHINGTON, D.C., November 30, 2018– The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) commends the governments of the United States, Mexico and Canada on signing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. We praise this positive step, which reconfirms the importance of free and fair trade among the three countries. We look forward to the next steps in this process. 

Tire manufacturing is vital to the U.S. economy. Tires manufactured by our members safely transport millions of Americans and American goods each day. USTMA opposes trade policies that threaten the competitiveness of U.S. tire manufacturing.
