Foreign Ministers from NAFTA Nations to Meet in Mexico

US Apple Association President & CEO Issues Statement On State Of The Union Trade Message

If President Trump wants to better USA trade policy, promote economic growth, and increase the standard of living for all Americans, he should consider these three important points.

The letter signed by 36 GOP senators was released just hours before Trump is to deliver his State of the Union address to Congress. This proposal was supported by many in the auto industry, and US negotiators had previously indicated they were open to seeing the idea fleshed out into a more refined proposal.

A round of NAFTA negotiations recently concluded in Montreal, Canada.

Trump also said he would push to negotiate trade deals that "will protect American workers and American intellectual property, through strong enforcement of our trade rules", and hailed the end of what he termed "the era of economic surrender".

"Mr. President, your leadership has jump-started our economy". The news hit stock markets and the Canadian and Mexican currencies. However, with all parties now willing to remain at the table and progress being made on some key issues, the prospects of a renegotiated NAFTA becoming a reality are better than they were before the commencement of the sixth round of talks.

These efficiency losses and trade shifts would have an impact on US production of both goods and services, and thus also on USA employment. Despite pressure from GOP lawmakers and business leaders, he's kept up the criticism since taking office.

Trade is an issue with the potential to divide the GOP, since most congressional Republicans, especially in the Senate, support free trade and oppose the protectionist policies espoused by Trump. Last week, he imposed tariffs on imported washing machines and solar panels in his first major trade actions since withdrawing the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement within weeks of taking office a year ago.

Our previous global trade brief discussed the TPP-11 reaching an agreement on the "core elements" of a deal and having a contingency plan in place should NAFTA renegotiations fail. "We prepare for the blizzard", she said. "The elimination of NAFTA would be very negative for the wheat prices in this country".

"I'm confident that the president is going to see that and choose to not terminate because it's not in his or Americans' best interests to walk away from NAFTA", he said. "But this has been a very, very good trade agreement for the United States and certainly Pennsylvania, and we wanted to communicate that because in part, let's face it, the president has at times expressed a lot of skepticism about NAFTA". One example is a USA proposal to increase the percentage of automobile content that must be manufactured in North America in order to qualify for lower tariffs. Trade officials agreed on a new treaty's anti-corruption provisions and narrowed the gaps over customs issues. Furthermore, North American supply chains would be jeopardized, and USA businesses could be exposed to over $15 billion in new tariffs. President Trump has also shown a willingness to negotiate past March and into the summer of 2018, noting that the Mexican election in July will likely make completing a deal before then hard. To date, negotiators from the United States, Canada, and Mexico have completed six negotiating rounds in which some common ground has been found, but several large sticking points remain.

"We find that the automobile rules of origin idea that was presented, when analyzed, may actually lead to less regional content than we have now and fewer jobs in the United States, Canada, and likely Mexico", U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said on Thursday. Many economists say those jobs are gone for good.

In recent weeks, Trump has backed off his most aggressive rhetoric about leaving the deal.

"Americans are exporting more to Canada than any other country in the world". A congressional delegation including Rep. David Reichert, R-Wash., the chairman of the House trade subcommittee, met with Lighthizer to show congressional backing for the deal.

Ms Freeland will meet her U.S. and Mexican counterparts in Mexico City today to discuss the talks and other issues.
