Alan Berube, senior fellow and deputy director at the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program, recently praised the integrated supply chains between Mexico, Canada and the United States and outlined proposals that would increase North America’s share of global exports.

“Trade volumes between the United States and Canada and Mexico are massive and growing, due in no small part to the fact that manufacturers now treat the continent as one seamless market for research, design, production, and distribution,” Berube wrote. “Firms—both large multinationals like Bombardier and Volkswagen and smaller firms like 3D Robotics and Vitro—stretch their supply chains across North America to maximize product quality and minimize product cost. As a result, the three countries now make technologically advanced products in a globally distinct trilateral partnership.”
