Industrial Watch: November 23, 2019

“Trade turbulence and tariff discussions aren’t going anywhere and continue to be top of mind for industrial real estate professionals. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It was signed in 2018, but has not been approved yet by House Democrats who cite better labor standard enforcement as the reason. The agreement would require that almost half of all steel used in the manufacturing of automobiles be made in the United States. In addition, workers’ pay in Mexico would increase and the U.S. would be more competitive. Some believe this will be a boost for the industrial sector and await the overdue decision.”
