NAFTA discussions wrapped up Sunday night concluding in a deal made with a new name. The  United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) is said to 're-balance' North American trade. 

Within the agreement a U.S. led initiative that Canada consented to is to extend the patent protection for biologics from eight to 10 years. 

Accompass will continue to monitor the situation and update our clients as more information is available.
