How Might New Trade Deal in North America Affect Southeast Michigan?

Trump has been a frequent critic of NAFTA calling it the

The United States, Canada and Mexico are trying to come up with at least a preliminary agreement in principle by the end of the week. Progress between Mexico and the United States is a necessary requirement for any renewed NAFTA agreement... Volumes above that level would be subject to tariffs, auto industry officials and other sources said.

The United States and Mexico agreed on Monday to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), putting pressure on Canada to agree to new terms on auto trade and dispute settlement rules to remain part of the three-nation pact.

"Given the encouraging announcement today of further bilateral progress between the USA and Mexico, Minister Freeland will travel to Washington, D.C., tomorrow to continue negotiations", her spokesman said.

"I think that what they probably need by Friday is some indication from Canada to the Americans that it's ready to play ball, that they're ready to negotiate in good faith", said Mark Warner, a trade lawyer with MAAW Law, which specializes in Canadian and US law.

Lighthizer explained that up to 1,000 people were involved in the seven rounds of negotiations between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada over the course of a year. What's the rollback in the other areas, and what does Mexico think they agreed to?

After being absent from a month of U.S. USA farmers say that's a violation of Canada's trade commitments. She said she was "encouraged" and "optimistic" upon her departure from the morning meeting, but she did not provide details. "I think it's going to lead to more jobs for American workers and farmers but also more jobs for workers and farmers from Mexico".

"Our officials are meeting now, and we'll be meeting until very late in the night", Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told reporters Wednesday.

Canada has been absent from the NAFTA bargaining table since trilateral talks paused last spring.

Mexico's peso strengthened against the U.S. dollar, as did the Canadian dollar, while the USA dollar index weakened slightly.

I think the two teams can be compared in this way; both of them have a very fast transition, with very fast players up front. Hughton added: "It's a poor goal, we try and move on from that as quickly as possible".

Trump said that he intends to terminate NAFTA and that the United States would immediately begin negotiations with Canada, the third party in the trilateral trade pact that he has called the "worst deal ever".

She declined comment on the issues still in play, but said on Tuesday that Mexico's concessions on auto rules of origin and labor rights had been a breakthrough.

BMO chief economist Douglas Porter said in a note that the deal "raises more questions than answers for Canada" and leaves the country in a hard situation.

Some lawmakers said however, that a bilateral pact could lose the benefits of US "fast-track" negotiating authority, which calls for a trilateral deal. "But it's not clear to me there would be support in Congress for a bilateral deal". "Because Canada has been very rough on our farmers", Trump said. "We are in regular contact with our negotiating partners, and we will continue to work toward a modernized NAFTA" but "we will only sign a new NAFTA that is good for Canada and good for the middle class". Mexico is the third largest US trading partner.

Trump said he still could put tariffs on Canadian-made cars if Canada did not join its neighbors and warned he expected concessions on Canada's dairy protections.

In March this year, Trump imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum imports from overseas.

However, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the administration was keen to get Canada on board quickly.

The White House said Mr Trump will sign the deal in 90 days. Congress has to approve it.
