What Are The Differences Between NAFTA & USMCA (U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement)?

Recently, the United States, Canada, and Mexico reached an agreement to revise the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The USMCA, or “NAFTA 2.0.,” has been finalized, and in this updated agreement, the goal is to have more car and truck parts made in North America to qualify for zero tariffs.
