Donald Trump announces new trade deal with Mexico

BREAKING NAFTA is Out a New Trade Deal With Mexico is Officially Here

President Donald Trump says he intends to terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement and call its replacement "the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement" - a name that would exclude the third NAFTA partner, Canada.

"[The] announcement of an agreement - and I think that should be [considered] a soft agreement, preliminary agreement, or an understanding with Mexico - gave people a look at the path out of all of the tariffs that the president has been placing on so many of our allies and the issue he's had with NAFTA", Heyman said. He previously called it a "terrible deal". It does add pressure on Canada to reenter the talks if the 1994 agreement is to be overhauled. "They underestimated President Trump and his overall negotiation strategy". In addition to negotiations with Canada, it would have to be ratified by lawmakers in each country.

"I think our objective is to try to get Canada on board quickly", he said, speaking to CNBC on Tuesday.

There is no formal free trade deal between the U.S. and Mexico, only an agreement between the two countries on how to resolve key issues in their trade relationship as part of the NAFTA talks. Starbucks and Costco now have more than 500 stores in Mexico.

Although much could change in negotiating the final language and Canada's participation, these compromises would represent significant victories for Trump.

Although China is still Washington's number one export market, Canada is number two, and Mexico is the eighth largest trade partner, according to the Washington Department of Commerce.

Trump has threatened he still could put tariffs on Canadian-made cars if Canada did not join its neighbors and warned he expected concessions on Canada's dairy protections.

President Trump has been highly critical of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and has complained it effectively sends jobs to Canada and Mexico.

Investors are betting on a deal materializing soon between Canada and the US, according to analysts, who say the Canadian market will follow its number one trading partner higher, despite the hurdles facing an agreement. "Canada's signature is required". Though details of the new agreement are still unclear, it will predictably become less profitable for Canada than under NAFTA, which was condemned by the United States president as the "single worst deal ever approved". "A trilateral agreement is the best path forward", he said, adding that millions of jobs are at stake.

"It's a big day for trade", said Trump. Canada will have an option to sign into the agreement later if a breakthrough doesn't happen this week, he said.

But getting his way would not be that simple, Mr Lawrence says. That seems unlikely, although certainly not impossible, before the end of the year, after which a newly elected Congress will take over. Both Canada and Mexico, as well as many in the US business community, reject that idea.

Nissan said it was "encouraged that an agreement was reached, and hope that it appropriately considers the impact on our employees, suppliers and customers".

"It's been an honor and you've been my friend", Trump told Nieto.

The agreement has some key changes for the auto, farming and textile industries but is short on the detailed text typical among nations before an agreement is signed, experts said. Higher labor standards: The new deal would require that 40% to 45% of auto parts in cars sold be made by workers earning at least $16 United States dollars per hour. It also mandates 40 percent to 45 percent of content will be made by workers earning at least $16 an hour. It will be hard to enforce without Canada's participation in a trilateral agreement, given various supply-chain complications.

The new agreement with Mexico provides zero tariffs on agricultural products.

"They recognized that NAFTA is critical for Mexico", said Duncan Wood, the director of the Wilson Center's Mexico Institute.

University of Laval professor Louis Belanger agreed, explaining that the US-Mexico issues were obstacles to reaching an accord and needed to be resolved separately before trilateral negotiations could continue.
