“We’re grateful for this historic agreement, which will help Missouri agriculture and businesses grow with more jobs and increasing exports,” Ashcroft said in a release Wednesday. “As our economy recovers, getting businesses and people back to work, this agreement will help ensure success for large and small businesses who compete and form partnerships with our neighbors. We stand ready to assist our entrepreneurs and businesses.”

Ashcroft’s Business Services Division is responsible for business filings in Missouri. Ashcroft said he joined fellow secretaries of state — in Alabama, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, Texas and Wyoming — who oversee the business filings process in their states in supporting the USMCA’s launch.
