Statement by Minister Ng on Canada抯 request for CUSMA dispute settlement consultations with United States on Canadian solar productsThursday, January 07, 2021 > 14:12:22
The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, today issued the following statement regarding Canada’s request for consultations with the United States under Chapter 31 of the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) with respect to continued U.S. safeguard tariffs on Canadian solar products:
“Canada is a trusted partner of the United States with long-established cross-border supply chains that enhance North American competitiveness, strengthen U.S. national security, and benefit citizens on both sides of the border.
“Canada has requested consultations with the United States on its continued tariffs on solar products, as first steps in the CUSMA dispute settlement process. These tariffs are unwarranted and clearly violate the provisions and the spirit of CUSMA.
“As we work to rebuild our economies and overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada and the United States must work together through strong cross-border climate action to attract investment in the North American economy, cut pollution, strengthen supply chains, and grow jobs for people on both sides of the border in the increasingly competitive low-carbon global economy.
