AMLO highlights virtues of T-MEC The President of Mexico insisted that the new treaty will strengthen the economy of North America, making it very good news for the inhabitants of the three countries. He assured that the T-MEC has elements that the previous treaty does not, such as establishing that the goods produced in the region must have a high regional content, that is, they must carry something that is produced in Canada, Mexico or the United States. The other element, which he considered ‘fundamental and fair’, is that better wages and working conditions are guaranteed for workers in the three countries.
