Welles Orr Comments on Tariff Dispute in the Wall Street Journal

"Tariff Dispute Complicates U.S. Ties With Mexico"

Wall Street Journal


Welles Orr commented on the dynamics of U.S.-Mexico negotiations following President Trump's threat to impose the tariffs on Mexico while the two countries are fighting over the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to replace NAFTA. While many predict the tariffs threat will negatively affect the USMCA's approval prospects, Orr said, "Strangely enough, we're in this world where I think you can dust yourself off and move forward, despite the fact you went through this sort of nightmare exercise." The article was also picked up by other publications, including Morningstar.
