Many years ago, in February 2015, when the Trans-Pacific Partnership was signed, President Obama said that agreements like this allow us to “write the rules of the road in the 21st century.” But history took another turn when President Trump withdrew from the TPP in his first days in office (which eventually advanced without the United States and became the CPTPP). Nafta was the first free trade agreement to contain a chapter on intellectual property96 The WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) aspects of intellectual property rights (TRIPS), which came into force a year later, was included in the chapter of the AGREEMENT ON the IPR. This chapter was also preceded by the widespread use of Internet forecasting. Since NAFTA, intellectual property rights provisions in U.S. free trade agreements have evolved in different ways and NAFTA parties may consider expanded provisions. The TPP included, for example, provisions relating to intellectual property rights in the digital environment, additional patent protection for medicines, criminal sanctions for the theft of trade secrets, provisions for customs officers who are automatically authorized to confiscate falsified and illegally manufactured goods, and country requirements, criminal penalties for copyright infringement and infringement in the digital environment.

Immigration policy debate in the southwestern states Mexican politicians saw NAFTA as a chance to accelerate both and in these hard-won reforms of the Mexican economy. In addition to trade liberalization, Mexican leaders have reduced public debt, introduced a balanced budget rule, stabilized inflation and built up the country`s foreign exchange reserves. Although Mexico was hit hard by the 2008 financial crisis because of its dependence on exports to the U.S. market – the following year, Mexican exports to the United States fell by 17% and its economy fell by more than 6% – its economy rebounded fairly quickly and returned to growth in 2010. On May 18, 2017, the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) provided Congress with a 90-day notice of his intention to begin talks with Canada and Mexico to renegotiate NAFTA, as required by the Trade Promotion Authority (P.L. 114-26) 2015. Some of the trade issues that Congress could address with respect to NAFTA and the likely renegotiation of the agreement include the economic consequences of exiting the agreement, the impact on relations with Canada and Mexico, the requirements that Canada and Mexico could make to the negotiations, and an assessment of how to “modernize” or renegotiate NAFTA.
