IPC joins call for passage of U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Feb. 26, 2019
BANNOCKBURN, IL—Representing the views of more than 2,500 U.S. companies engaged in the global electronics industry, and their nearly 1 million workers, IPC–Association Connecting Electronics Industries, is joining the new USMCA Coalition, which is being launched Tuesday in Washington by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

More than 200 companies and associations representing an array of economic sectors are backing the USMCA Coalition, which will advocate for congressional approval of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. 

“Building a stronger U.S. electronics industry depends in no small measure on building a stronger North American supply chain,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “Our association has members with both headquarters and thousands of jobs in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, and thus we have a strong interest in securing enactment of this agreement.

“The USMCA promises to spur even greater integration among the North American economies and strengthen the region’s stature as a formidable global manufacturing base. Improving the manufacturing competitiveness of North America will unlock more growth, innovation and job creation, benefiting people across the continent and the world.

“As always, IPC will continue to advocate for our members’ interests as the debate goes forward.”
