MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Tuesday he will tell a delegation of U.S. lawmakers visiting Mexico later this week that the USMCA trade deal is important for the region, and he called for its ratification by the U.S. Congress.

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) has been approved by Mexico’s Senate, but must pass the U.S. and Canadian legislatures before coming into effect.
