Canada and Mexico optimistic about NAFTA talks despite trade tensions at G20

Mexico's incoming president wants to work with Trump to end NAFTA talks anti-establishment alliance

Canada has requested a NAFTA Chapter 20 review of the safeguard tariffs imposed by the United States on imports of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, it was announced on Monday.

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke warmly of Mexico's incoming leftist president on Monday, saying he expected to get "something worked out" on NAFTA, while a top Mexican official said there was scope to revive the trade talks this week.

Lopez Obrador, who takes office December 1., said he was not aware of any deal Trump was referring to, but he was open to talking with the US, according to Bloomberg.

"Otherwise, I must go a much different route", Trump said in response to a letter delivered to him by a delegation of USA officials led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that visited Lopez Obrador in Mexico City on July 13.

Freeland said that the increase in tariffs for solar panels is a violation of NAFTA had occurred despite the fact that the Commission United States worldwide trade found that imports from Canada is not detrimental to the economy of the United States.

The negotiations, which had effectively stalled as Canada and Mexico struggled to accommodate US demands for major changes, will resume in Washington on Thursday.

His administration also announced up to US$12-billion in emergency aid for American farmers hurt by his trade wars - money to ease the pain of retaliatory tariffs imposed by jurisdictions from China to Canada to the European Union.

"The new president, terrific person", Trump said in a speech at the White House about American manufacturing. However, The New England Council believes it is crucial that the playing field remain open for businesses, workers, and families across New England, so that they - through no fault of their own - are not disadvantaged by potential retaliatory trade measures or a defunct NAFTA.




Obrador sent Trump a letter that urges a restart of the NAFTA renegotiations.

Last week, Trump mused about separate deals with Canada and Mexico.

"Prolonging the uncertainty could slow down investments in the medium and long-term".

On Wednesday, Lopez Obrador will meet with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland in his transition offices.

Seade said Mexico was paying close attention to Trump.

Paris cited the results of research conducted by Earnscliffe Strategy Group for the Department of National Defence.

He said the answer has less to do with traditional perceptions of threats to national security, and "reveals a more general concern about the impact of the Trump administration on Canadian interests, including our economic interests".
