End of 2018 'best case' for new Nafta, says Mexico

Friday, August 4, 2017


Under a best-case scenario, a newly negotiated Nafta would not be implemented before the end of next year or the start of 2019, Mexico's economy minister said on Thursday.

Among other issues, talks would focus on how to provide more certainty in dispute resolutions, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said in a radio interview.

"According to the possible calendars of approval, the best of the scenarios that we could have ... would be the start of implementation almost at the end of 2018 or the start of 2019," Guajardo said.
