United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Dialogue
The USMCA SME Dialogue is convened by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), together with the Global Affairs Canada and Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service, and the Development Productive Unit and the Vice Ministry of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Economy of Mexico. The Dialogue brings together small- and medium-sized businesses and stakeholders, including those representing underserved communities, with government officials to discuss strengthening regional trade and investment with USMCA, enhancing cooperation on issues of mutual interest to SMEs, and helping more small businesses benefit from the USMCA, which will foster economic growth and jobs in communities across North America. Topics for discussion include USMCA small business trade resources for exporting and importing under USMCA; SMEs sharing their best practices for trading across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico; and small business COVID-19 recovery resources. Participation in this free virtual event is open to SME stakeholder communities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, but space is limited online and inclusion is not guaranteed, so early registration is encouraged.
