Make Your Voice Heard; Submit NAFTA Comments

As you may already know, negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are currently ongoing.

Given the 23-year-old trade deal could be enhanced, the Aurora Regional Chamber of Commerce is seeking comments and information on the areas of NAFTA that have been most beneficial to Illinois businesses and exporters.

Our main message: Do No Harm.

The reason is simple: Some 14 million American jobs depend on trade with Canada and Mexico and $1.3 trillion in trade crosses our border annually.

Now is an important time to pull together as a Federation to support the modernization of NAFTA.

There are a number of ways that you can help and we welcome your advice now and moving ahead to ensure this effort is sustained and effective.
We are also interested in comments about potential proposals that may have an adverse or unintended consequence to your business or industry.

We want the voice of our business members to be heard during these negotiations.

To better fulfill our promise, we want to provide the Illinois congressional delegation and the administration with a document expressing our business community’s top issues pertaining to NAFTA.

Please submit your comments here by September 8, 2017.
