Mexico And Canada Are Hopeful About NAFTA Talks With The US

Officials from Mexico and Canada say they're hopeful when it comes to NAFTA talks with the U.S.

The finance ministers from both countries told Reuters they're eager to wrap up NAFTA renegotiations so the three countries can come to an agreement. And their leaders have expressed similar sentiments in recent days.

In a letter to President Donald Trump, Mexico's new president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he believes it's "worth making an effort to conclude the renegotiation" of NAFTA. 

And Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country is "committed to renegotiating and improving and updating" the agreement.

Canada, Mexico and the U.S. began renegotiating NAFTA in August 2017. But trade tensions are already high between these nations after the U.S. imposed import tariffs on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum.
