The two-day virtual meeting ended late Tuesday evening and at the stroke of midnight, a joint virtual communique was issued in which the three nations express the commitment to implement and comply with the rules of the tripartite free trade agreement.

They admitted solid discussions, interpreted as differences among the parties, on fundamental issues for the region, such as the historical labor and environmental obligations expressed in the treaty, which will establish the bases for new agreements in subsequent meetings.

The virtual meeting was chaired by Mexican Secretary of the Economy Tatiana Clouthier, United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai, and Canadian Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade Mary Ng.

The three representatives agreed that the T-MEC represents a commitment to develop a strong and inclusive North American economy that serves as a global model for competitiveness.
