Because of this agreement, it creates a liquid circulation of trade and investment flows among the NAFTA members. In fact, to act as the largest single export market of the U.S.A, Canada sends ninety eight percent of its
The U.S. spend billions of dollars every year on preventative care such as heart disease, cancer, AIDS and many more disease; millions more are spent on trying to find a cure for disease such as MS, MD, AIDS, cancer, polo and so many more. The advantage to the U.S. would come by way of universal health care as it is today.

The binding ingredient when it comes to imports and exports in these three powerful countries is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). NAFTA is one of the most influential international agreement between the US, Canada and Mexico that defined the economic, social and political development of the three countries and North American region.

Over the years, the U. S. auto industry's market has been experiencing fluctuations due to many reasons including: price, quality and foreign competition. General Motors Corporation (GM) which had been the leading car and truck manufacturer had been experiencing declining market share and facing stiff competition from both U.S manufacturers and foreign imports such as the Asian auto producers that included Toyota, Honda and Nissan.
