US Lifts Steel And Aluminum Tariffs On Canada, Mexico

President Donald Trump announced today a deal to lift US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Mexico.

MWFPA President Nick George said in a statement, “The removal of these tariffs is very positive news for our members and for the consumers of canned food products.”

The US tariffs imposed last year — 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum — became a major stumbling block to ratifying a new North American trade pact negotiated last year by the three countries known as USMCA.  According to George, “Congress should build upon this major development by passing USMCA quickly.”
