President Trump signed the new NAFTA implementation bill on January 29, after the US Senate passed the new trade pact on January 16. Passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement fulfills Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to update the original NAFTA with Mexico and Canada. Democrats have also regarded the deal as a win due to major changes they secured in negotiations with the Trump administration.

The signing leaves Canada as the only member of the trilateral deal still to ratify the agreement, a process that began on January 29 as MPs voted on a motion to begin the process of debating a Canadian version of the bill in the House of Commons.
