Today, the Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) released the following statement regarding the vote by the U.S. Senate to ratify the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
WDMA is pleased to see Congress approve the USMCA, which is a significant win for American manufacturing – said WDMA President & CEO Michael O’Brien. – Approval of the agreement will provide stability in the North American trading relationship and will help spur economic growth in years to come. The North American market is a critical sector for the window, door and skylight industry, and we commend Congress for taking action on a new agreement that is critical to both the manufacturing and construction industries.
The USMCA will take effect later this year after it is approved, as expected, by the Canadian Parliament. It has already been approved by Mexico.
