Canada Says Work Still To Be Done On NAFTA

Negotiators are making progress on a modernized NAFTA but "have significant work ahead," Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs has said.

Chrystia Freeland is in Mexico for the seventh round of NAFTA renegotiation talks. She said that in the negotiations Canada has been "constructive, fair-minded, and determined to reach not just any deal, but a good deal."

Freeland explained that in previous rounds negotiators had closed chapters on competition, SMEs, and anti-corruption. She said that during the seventh round, they had closed the chapters on good regulatory practices, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and also annexes on chemicals and proprietary food formulas.

She added that headway is being made "on some of the more challenging issues" and that discussion "has been constructive."

"We are making progress – but we have significant work ahead," Freeland stressed.
