Mexico hopes to resolve NAFTA talks

MNA Business Desk: Mexico’s Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said US and Mexican negotiators are making progress and could resolve remaining issues to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement by next week.

Once the two nations iron out the pending differences, Canada could then rejoin the discussions, he told reporters following a meeting with US trade officials.

“Hopefully we will be able to close up no later than the middle of the week the remaining issues and probably there will be space to start the trilateral,” he said, reported news agency.

Guajardo has been leading a delegation to Washington for four straight weeks to try to conclude a deal to rewrite NAFTA in time to be signed before a new government takes office in Mexico in December.
