Trump sets plan to renegotiate NAFTA, local lawmakers keeping watch


Lighthizer said he believed that NAFTA, which took effect in January 1994, had proved successful for some sectors, including investment services, agriculture and energy.

The senators noted that NAFTA has led to "tremendous growth" in US trade with Mexico and Canada, and that it has "integrated cross-border supply chains that benefit USA employers, and more than tripled US exports of goods, including agricultural and manufactured goods, and services".

"Our trade agreements must be judged by whether they create jobs and grow the paychecks of hard-working Americans", she said in a statement. "Canada economic relationship is the gold standard of global commerce, really evolving into a post trade status within which we make things together and enhance one another's competitiveness with the rest of the world", he said. It's a major thoroughfare for trade between Mexico and the U.S.

Snapchat maker Snap issued its first earnings report as a public company on Wednesday, and, well, it could've gone better. However, other analysts were less pessimistic, noting the potential for future growth despite the missed targets.

In his letter to congressional leaders, Lighthizer said Nafta needs modernisation for provisions on digital trade, intellectual property rights, labour and environmental standards, regulatory practices, rules for state-owned enterprises and food-safety standards. He repeatedly complained that bad trade deals had cost America jobs and this gained him support among the working class voters, who were instrumental to his winning the elections. The much shorter letter that was actually sent makes no mention of this. There's no guarantee its next president will cooperate with Trump on NAFTA given his anti-Mexico rhetoric.

Since the signing of NAFTA, we have seen our manufacturing industry decimated, factories shuttered, and countless workers left jobless.

In a statement, it says: "We reaffirm our willingness to update the agreement in order to successfully address the challenges of the 21st century".

Trump agreed not to pull out of NAFTA last month after phone calls with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

United States trade with the two countries has more than tripled since Nafta went into effect in 1994, with more than $1tr goods and services exchanged each year.

Supporters of NAFTA argue that the agreement has helped the United States automotive industry remain competitive, and that European automakers take advantage of lower manufacturing costs in other countries through similar trade deals.

Earlier in the week, Senator John McCain and seventeen other Senators wrote a letter to U.S Trade Representative Lighthizer agreeing that NAFTA "will benefit from strengthening and modernization", but warning that abandoning the agreement "will have devastating economic consequences".

Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch, called it "markedly vague".
