North American countries start business competitiveness council
The United States, Canada and Mexico will officially announce today the formation of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC).
The council, which is made up of company executives from the three countries, will provide recommendations on how to improve the competitiveness of North American businesses in global markets.
The council will provide “strategic, medium and long-term advice to governments on ways to advance our common prosperity and security,” the U.S. Commerce Department said in a statement.
The NACC is part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, which the three governments started on March 23, 2005.
