NAFTA: A Strong Record of Success

• For agriculture, Canada and Mexico alone account for 55 percent of the increase in U.S. agricultural exports to the world since the NAFTA since 1993.

• NAFTA has been good for Mexican agriculture. Trade growth has been remarkably balanced with U.S. agricultural exports to Mexico increasing $5.7 billion and U.S. agricultural imports from Mexico increasing $5.6 billion during the last twelve years. U.S. Growth: 48% Mexico’s Growth: 40% Canada’s Growth: 49%

• Compensation. Growth in real compensation for manufacturing workers improved dramatically. Average real compensation grew at an average annual rate of 2.3% from 1993 to 2005, compared to just 0.4% annually between 1987 (earliest data available) and 1993.
