Iowa

Iowa leads the U.S. in corn production and nearly one-third of all the nation’s pigs are raised in the state – in fact, hogs outnumber residents by more than 7 to 1. So it is natural that agriculture and food production feeds much of Iowa’s exports to Canada, the state’s No.1 customer for goods.

Canada is the United States’ number one customer in the world

Canadian trade and investment support hundreds of thousands of American jobs and benefit communities throughout the United States. The deep economic relationship between the U.S. and Canada is built on shared values, close people-to-people ties, and a robust trade agreement – the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) – which provides the foundation for a more competitive North America.
