Canada's Freeland plans NAFTA talks Thurs, much work remains

Mexico sees US-Canada trade deal'in the coming days

Mexico, within the intervening time, is transferring forward to plot up the text of the proposed bilateral deal it reached with the United States in August. "The tone is more constructive, the tone has been different", said the source.

The biggest sticking point is the Chapter 19 dispute resolution mechanism.

Canada appears ready to compromise with the USA on dairy access in a new North American Free Trade Agreement Deal.

"The U.S. isn't transferring great", talked about Dan Ujczo, an Ohio-essentially essentially based completely global commerce lawyer who has labored for the Canadian and U.S. governments and monitors the NAFTA talks intently.

As well, there remain deep differences on intellectual property. U.S. President Donald Trump says he will ditch Canada unless it quickly makes concessions. But Canadian officials say that dispute has been overblown.

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday he wanted a good NAFTA deal as soon as possible, but did not answer directly when asked if he agreed with Washington that the end of September was the final deadline for talks. Washington charges that Canadian lumber unfairly undercuts prices on US lumber.

Trump has repeatedly said he'd be perfectly happy to proceed with the bilateral deal without Canada.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Trump mused about renaming the trade pact "USMC" - with "M" referring to Mexico and "C" for Canada.

Hurricane Florence Leaves 5 Dead In US, Communities Flooded
People are rescued by members of the US Army during the passing of Hurricane Florence in the town of New Bern, North Carolina, US. Morehead City, North Carolina , had received 23 inches (58 centimeters) of rain by Friday night with more torrents on the way.

The report said Trump groused about Canada's negotiators and expressed his frustration with the neighbour to the North.

While Trudeau has vowed to protect Canada's system of supply management which regulates the price of dairy, eggs and poultry, he has also indicated he's willing to be flexible on allowing some limited additional imports, as was done in the Trans Pacific and European Union trade deals.

"Mexico stated from the beginning of the negotiation that the ideal scenario is for NAFTA to remain trilateral", Smith Ramos wrote on twitter.

Mexico hopes that Washington and Ottawa will reach quickly a compromise on the trade agreement Nafta and its chief technical trader has gone to Washington to "continue to advance" on the topic, said on Wednesday the mexican minister of the Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo.

While Trudeau has been consulted throughout the 13-month negotiation, the face-to-face meetings with the negotiating team Wednesday suggested there were some big - and potentially politically loaded - issues to settle.

"We have seen various deadlines put forward as markers to work for", Mr. Trudeau said during a wrap-up of a governing Liberal Party retreat in Saskatoon.

However, Iowa Senator Chuck thinks a tri-lateral agreement will have a better chance at making it through Congress.

Mexican negotiators are pushing for an agreement to be formally signed by the leaders of all three countries before December 1st, the day Mexico's new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, takes office.
