North American Competitiveness
Work plan (NACW)
The United States, Canada, Mexico are collaborating on a North American Competitiveness Work Plan (NACW) to promote prosperity across North America and to strengthen our position as the most economically-competitive region in the world. The NACW provides a roadmap for trilateral cooperation that promotes prosperity across North America and enhances the competitiveness of the region.
In October 2013, Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker met trilaterally in San Diego with Canadian Minister of International Trade Ed Fast and Mexican Secretary of Economy Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal to discuss initiatives that the three commercial ministries could work on to enhance the business platform in North America. In 2014, Secretary Pritzker, Minister Fast, and Secretary Guajardo formally endorsed a North American Competitiveness Work Plan to enhance trade and deepen the economic relationship of the continent. Secretary Pritzker, Secretary Guajardo, and Canadian Minister Freeland last met in May 2016 to agree to a 2016-2017 Work Plan focused on three pillars: 1) Supply Chain Efficiency; 2) Innovation and Economic Development; and 3) Stakeholder Consultation and Outreach. The U.S., Canada, and Mexico are currently carrying out this scope of work.
