WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement that the United States, Canada and Mexico have reached an agreement to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement:

“When the United States is engaged and proactive with trade agreements, it’s beneficial to our economy, especially in Georgia, which exports more than $12 billion of its goods and services to Mexico and Canada each year. I’m pleased to see that we’ve made headway with both Canada and Mexico to ensure that our countries continue to engage in trade that benefits Georgia farmers, manufacturers and service providers. I look forward to reviewing the details of today’s agreement and evaluating whether it represents an improvement for Georgia.”
