Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) | January 10th, 2023 – OTTAWA
Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) is calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to push for more cooperation and coordination between governments and businesses in Canada, the United States, and Mexico at this week’s trilateral North American Leaders’ Summit (NALS). The threat to Canada’s ability to successfully compete is at risk with increasing government protectionism and manufacturing incentives, part of the US Inflation Reduction Act, that hurt CUSMA partners. This is a top concern for Canadian manufacturers.
“Manufacturers have been clear. There are more and more roadblocks to doing business in North America” says Dennis Darby, President and CEO of CME. “On top of that, continuing competition from jurisdictions like China only reinforce our need to work together. The North American Leaders Summit is the perfect opportunity for our three countries to reaffirm our commitment to North American free trade and to start using the tools at our disposal to develop our critical mineral supply chains, enhance environmental sustainability, and create prosperity for all” said Dennis Darby.
