Nafta is good for US, but Canada and Mexico say why

Monday, May 29, 2017

US president Donald Trump has been dithering on Nafta, since he took office, threatening to tear it up one minute and deciding to keep it the next.

While he makes up his mind, Nafta’s other members, Canada and Mexico, have taken it upon themselves to brief Americans on why it’s in their best interest to keep it. “It’s kind of our job as Mexicans and Canadians to be specialists in the US,” said Canada’s foreign affairs minister, Chrystia Freeland, during a May 23 conference organized by the Americas Society/Council of the Americas in Mexico City. “Americans are not always that focused on us and are not always that aware of their relationship with us.”
