U.S. Department of Commerce. Bureau of Census, foreign trade statistics. „New data updates 2005.“ Available at www.census.gov/foreign-trade/statistics/. Appeal on April 17, 2006. Overall, Canada has become more dependent on trade with the United States and has based its southern neighbour on 75 per cent of its exports. Other high-income countries tend to be much more diverse and rarely rely more than 20% on a single partner. U.S. presidents have long,s warm relationships with Canadian prime ministers, but Mr. Trump has not hesitated to use that dependency as leverage. As part of the USMCA talks, he threatened to impose new tariffs on Canadian auto parts if Ottawa did not accept trade concessions. The provisions of the Convention cover a wide range of agricultural products, homelessness, industrial products, working conditions and digital commerce.
Among the most important aspects of the agreement are improving U.S. dairy farmers` access to the Canadian market, guidelines for a greater proportion of automobiles produced in the three countries and not imported from other countries, and maintaining the dispute settlement system, which is similar to that contained in NAFTA.   In addition to the labor rules, Democrats said they had obtained the abolition of a 10-year exclusivity period for the biological drugs in the agreement, which they feared would lead to higher U.S. drug prices. But the experience of NAFTA in Mexico has suffered from Dencander`s promises between the promises of some of his supporters – that the pact would bring rapid growth, raise wages and reduce emigration – and the outcome of the agreement. Between 1993 and 2013, during which time Latin America experienced significant economic expansion, the Mexican economy grew at an average annual rate of 1.3%. Poverty remains at the same level as in 1994. And the expected wage convergence in the United States and Mexico did not occur, as Mexico`s per capita income increased by an average of only 1.2% per year during this period – much slower than Latin American countries such as Brazil, Chile and Peru. The delay has sometimes threatened to abandon the agreement, which has led to investment insecurity in all three countries, and worried U.S. farmers are already suffering from tariffs resulting from Trump`s trade war with China.
