Canada’s Minister of Infrastructure visits ND to talk NAFTA


Canada’s Minister of Infrastructure paid us a visit today.
He met with the Bismarck-Mandan chamber of commerce and the greater North Dakota chambers to talk North American Fair Trade Agreement.

Canada is North Dakota’s largest export market, purchasing 82 percent of our goods– an amount greater than all other countries combined. 9 million US jobs are dependent on trade with Canada, making relations all the more important.

NAFTA is a 24 year-old agreement, and Minister Amarjeet Sohi says it’s time for an update.
Amarjeet Sohi; Canandian Minister of Canada: “For our economic success and for the US and Canada and Mexico. We negotiate NAFTA for what works for all of us, that works for the middle class.”

The minister of infrastructure was not at all shy to touch on the increased steel tariffs.

Amarjeet Sohi; Canandian Minister of Canada: “We are very concerned about the US administration’s decision of May 31st to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and linking that to security. Any linkage of Canada being a security concern for US is completely unacceptable..”

The minister also met with governor Doug Burgum today to continue the conversation.
