Mexico Minister Sees More Than 50 Percent Chance Of Initial Nafta Deal This Year


MEXICO CITY – Mexico’s economy minister said on Tuesday that he sees a better than 50 percent chance of reaching an agreement in principle on NAFTA this year despite escalating tensions between his country and the United States.

“I would tell you that I see good probabilities that in the months that are left (this year)… we can reach a solution,” Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on local television.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump may seek separate talks with Canada and Mexico in a bid to get individual trade deals with the two countries.
