Reports suggest the next round of NAFTA talks could begin next month in Washington, with still no firm deal yet to adjust the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Round 7 in Mexico City saw U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer conclude: “we have not made the progress that many had hoped in this round … I understand that these talks are not easy for anyone.  Each of us has our own political concerns.  But we are at the point where we have very important decisions to be made.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, meanwhile, said: “trade is not a zero-sum game. In trade, we can all win. And we need to all win, in order to reach an agreement that will benefit all our people.”
