US, Canada to resume NAFTA talks Tuesday

Open this

"Maybe that helps us all put into perspective the negotiations that we're having - and also put into a little bit of historical perspective the importance and the significance of the relationship between Canada and the United States", she said of the anniversary.

The two sides must submit an agreed-upon text to the U.S. Congress by October 1 in order to join the agreement the U.S. with Mexico last month. "And if we don't sign the deal, it's because no deal is actually better than a bad deal for Canada". In Michigan, 259,000 jobs depend on trade and investment with Canada, the study said.

Dino Chiodo, automotive director for Unifor Canada, noted that workers would have much to lose if a trade deal is not reached.

Take the automobile industry as an example: If Canada was left out of NAFTA, vehicle prices could rise in the USA due to proposed new tariffs on Canadian autos.

In Windsor, Mayor Drew Dilkens pointed to the impact on the city's largest employer - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which produces the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan at the Windsor Assembly Plant - if the Trump administration were to impose 25 percent tariffs on Canadian automobiles, as the president has repeatedly threatened.

"Our economies have grown to become regional economies (in the decades NAFTA has been in place)".

It is unclear how long the current round of talks will go on in Washington.

Obama's criticism of Trump "very disappointing": Pence
He noted that he doesn't anticipate Obama getting into a " small-hand, name-calling kind of thing " that Trump would relish in. At a fundraiser in North Dakota, the USA president told a crowd of supporters: "I watched it, but I fell asleep ".

The news was stunning because negotiators for all three countries had been trying to hammer out a new accord for over a year, ever since President Donald Trump followed through on his campaign threat to demand the North American Free Trade Agreement be scrapped or replaced. "I can - all I have to do is tax cars - it would be devastating".

Canada's main stock market started the week down for seventh-straight day amid an off-day for any headlines on NAFTA as negotiations are set to resume Tuesday. That second level is what the public is witnessing.

"Do I think there will be some kind of agreement?"

"Even if we gave him everything he wanted - and there is no way we would ever do that - who can say whether he'd be satisfied?" said one source, who declined to be identified given the extreme sensitivity of the situation.

"We sent them (the officials) a number of issues to work on and they will report back to us in the morning, and we will then continue our negotiations", Freeland told reporters on leaving the U.S. Trade Representative's office in Washington on Wednesday.

"There's an opportunity to update NAFTA and we're happy to do it, but as I've said it has to be the right deal, it has to be a good deal", he said. In April 2017, Trump almost withdrew from NAFTA after becoming angered by the plight of Wisconsin dairy farmers whose milk protein exports to Canada had been cut off by the Class 7 pricing scheme.

Interest groups on both sides of the border will ensure that Canada is in the deal - and legally, it would be cumbersome to do a deal that excludes the Canadians.
