Tim Powers Writes Guest Article for Dallas Regional Chamber: ‘Continued Free Trade is Vital to our Nation, as Well as our Home State and City’

Haynes and Boone, LLP Managing Partner Tim Powers authored an article for the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce that expressed support for the revised NAFTA trade arrangement, now known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Powers’ article, titled “Continued Free Trade is Vital to our Nation, as Well as our Home State and City,” was featured in the chamber’s Economic Development Blog.

Powers is a member of the Chamber’s International Task Force.

Here is an excerpt:

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been integral to the growth of the U.S., Mexico and Canada, and the pending revised trade arrangement, known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), promises to pave the way for these countries to sustain their productive business relationships for many years to come.

The USMCA is particularly good news for Dallas and the state of Texas — and for the businesses that are based here — as they are increasingly robust hubs for cross-border trade with Mexico, Canada and other countries. . . .

“I have seen firsthand how businesses benefit from the free flow of goods, ideas and talent across borders. Haynes and Boone opened an office in Mexico City in 1994 to support our many clients that consider Mexico a vital market. And as our clients have steadily expanded in other international markets, so, too, has Haynes and Boone, which was founded in Dallas in 1970 and now has 16 offices worldwide, including in London and Shanghai.”
