Mexico forces multiple rounds of Nafta talks

Monday, July 24, 2017

There could be between six to nine rounds of negotiations between the United States, Canada and Mexico in the event a quick deal is reached on a revamp of Nafta, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said.

Guajardo said the Nafta members were looking at avoiding gaps of more than three weeks between negotiating rounds with a view to making quick progress.

"If we calculate the times toward the end of the year, we're saying that this would give us a universe of rounds that could be between six and nine rounds," Guajardo said.
