NAFEM supports USMCA, calls for steel/aluminum tariff exemptions

In December, NAFEM submitted comments to the U.S. International Trade Commission (Commission) for its investigation of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) Agreement.

NAFEM’s comments generally support the United States’ signing of the USMCA, but encourage the administration to further negotiate an exemption for Mexico and Canada from the Section 232 aluminum and steel tariffs, which impose additional tariffs on certain products related to the foodservice industry and its domestically produced equipment and supplies.
