Maintaining our strong trade relationship is a priority to ensure the smooth flow of goods, services and investments, boosting Alberta's export-driven industries like energy, agriculture and manufacturing. Preserving our positive relationship with our U.S. counterparts helps safeguard jobs, economic growth and overall prosperity on both sides of the border."
