image of Commonwealth Guide to Trading with NAFTA Countries
Beginning with an overview of the economic and business background of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), this guide provides essential information to exporters about the new trading environment. It contains detailed product and market information on fifteen important product groups.

NAFTA has created a single new market of 360 million people, one of the largest trading areas in the world. Trade and investment among the NAFTA signatories exceeds $500 billion per year. North America’s strong record of innovation and economic growth makes this market a dynamic and important opportunity for Commonwealth exporters. This guide aims to facilitate the efforts of Commonwealth exporters to succeed in this challenging and rewarding market.



Other Applicable Trade Agreements

As mentioned earlier in this guide, NAFTA does not provide for a uniform tariff regime with regard to countries other than the member states. The United States and Canada have signed a number of trade agreements applicable to various Commonwealth countries. Mexico has no special tariff agreements with any Commonwealth country other than Canada, and applies its own tariff rates.
