How the USMCA Could Benefit US Steel Demand

The United States, Mexico, and Canada (EWC) have agreed to a new NAFTA deal that’s expected to replace the existing one—the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (or USMCA). The regional auto content rules have been enhanced under the new agreement, and 75.0% of cars should be made in North America, compared to the previous requirement of 62.5%. The new rules require more automotive production in regions where workers are paid more than $16.00 per hour.
