SIA, ALAS and CANASA Letter of Support for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement
The Security Industry Association (SIA), the Latin American Security Association (ALAS) and the Canadian Security Association (CANASA) have formed a coalition to urge the U.S. Congress to promptly approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the renegotiation of the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). SIA, ALAS and CANASA – the leading representation of the security industry in North America – collectively represent more than 2,500 companies with business operations located in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
In a Sept. 9, 2019, letter to Congress, the trilateral coalition highlighted the growth and change in the security industry and the renegotiation of NAFTA’s updates to reflect the current state of the market, create a fair-trade landscape and uphold pro-business principles in removing unnecessary trade barriers. Legislatures from Mexico and Canada have already voted in overwhelming support to ratify USMCA.
