With Congressional passage of several important trade agreements, the heartland of America, from the Laredo, Texas international port of entry, north through Oklahoma and the Kansas City intermodal hub to Iowa, enters a new era as a geographic crossroad for international trade. Ratification of the agreements between United States, Canada and Mexico demonstrates a strong belief in the ability to build an increasing volume of international trade between the three nations (as well as those who will follow).


Fast Facts:
North America's Superhighway Coalition, Inc.(NASCO) teams federal and state authorities with private business to promote the establishment of a network of "international trade corridors" that will facilitate the movement of people and goods throughout the nations of Canada, United States, and Mexico.
NASCO consists of five member U.S. states (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri), the City of Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba, the Red River Trade Corridor, private businesses, and the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, which carries more international truck traffic than any other border crossing in America.
NASCO works with other trade corridors in the common goal of improving our nations' roads to facilitate North American trade.
In 1997, NASCO signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Postal Service and the Texas General Land Office. Each of these organizations are committed to working together to develop a cooperative program to create alternative fuel re-fueling centers along the corridor to reduce pollution.
Congress authorized the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). This bill will provide $700 million in Contract Authority for Corridor and Border Infrastructure programs, or $140 million for each of fiscal years 1999 through 2003.
NASCO signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Department of Treasury to work to develop International Trade Processing Centers (ITPCs) along the I-35 International Trade Corridor (ITC).
Every dollar invested in the highway system yields $2.60 in economic benefits.
For every million dollars in goods exported to Mexico and Canada, 26.5 new jobs are created in the U.S. U.S. exports to Mexico and Canada will create 780,000 new jobs for Americans by the year 2000.
