Door County farmers and manufacturers would benefit greatly under the U.S Mexico Canada Agreement revision agreed to by Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Trump Administration. That deal was announced this week. Canada and Mexico are Door County's largest trading partners. Jim Schuessler, Executive Director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, says enacting the trade agreement would benefit area manufacturers immediately while some, like Therma-Tron-X in Sturgeon Bay, would grow over the long-term.
Schuessler says farm and dairy exports from Door County would grow with renewed and expanded trade with Mexico.
