The White House presents this event as the President fulfilling another promise.
US President Donald Trump will sign a new North American trade agreement at a ceremony at the White House on Wednesday, which will be attended by about 400 guests.
Among them, however, will not be the key Democrats who helped to approve this agreement in Congress.
“President Trump will mark another fulfilled promise, a promise made to the American people, when he signs the Agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.
“The agreement sets a new balance in trade in North America, replaces the North American free trade agreement that was killing jobs, stops outsourcing American jobs, and invests in the American worker,” he said.
The agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada must be ratified by Canada to enter into force. The US Senate earlier this month overwhelmingly approved the bill, sending it to Trump for signature. The Mexican Parliament has already approved the agreement.
The agreement contains tougher rules on labor and the auto industry, but generally leaves trade flows between the three countries totaling $ 1.2 trillion unchanged.
