What’s at stake for Ohio manufacturing in the NAFTA negotiations? A lot, to say the least.
Nearly a quarter of Ohio’s manufacturing production ($24 billion out of total production of $106 billion) is exported to Canada and Mexico.
Nearly 4,000 Ohio manufacturing firms export to the two countries, and more than 100,000 jobs are supported by those exports.
Without NAFTA, Ohio’s manufactured goods exports to Mexico alone could face a minimum of $262 million to $2.1 billion in extra taxes (compared to zero tariffs today).
Yet, NAFTA can be made better for Ohio and American manufacturing. Read how in this document produced by the National Association of Manufacturers. 5/10/2018
