The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was enacted in 1994 and created a free trade zone for Mexico, Canada, and the United States, is the most important feature in the U.S.-Mexico bilateral commercial relationship. Mexico is the United States’ third largest trading partner and second largest export market for U.S. products. U.S-Mexico bilateral trade in goods increased from $88 billion in 1993, the year prior to the implementation of NAFTA, to $531 billion in 2015, an increase of 503 percent. The United States and Canada share a $1.4 trillion bilateral trade and investment relationship. U.S. - Canada two-way trade in goods and services totaled nearly $759 billion in 2014.
