Who is Texas-Mexico Trade Coalition (TMTC)?

The Texas-Mexico Trade Coalition (TMTC) represents businesses and associations across the state of Texas and Mexico. TMTC is dedicated to fortifying the strong economic relationship between the U.S. and Mexico and securing the congressional ratification of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

USMCA

Both Texas and Mexico have seen their economies grow since NAFTA went into effect in 1994. TMTC will continue to advocate for a USMCA that incorporates recent technological advances and changes in certain sectors – without interrupting the $1.3 trillion in annual trade across the border.

With more than 700,000  jobs and about $110 billion worth of goods to Mexico annually, equating to up to 40% of Texas’ total exports, our state has the most to lose if Congress fails to ratify USMCA swiftly.  USMCA is the only way to ensure Texas’ economic vitality.
