NAFTA Talks Hopeful?


Republican U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert said on Sunday after a briefing, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is hopeful about talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. He realizes, though, a great deal of work remains. Officials from the United States, Canada and Mexico will wrap up the sixth of seven planned rounds of talks on NAFTA in Montreal on Monday. There is little sign of agreement on U.S. proposals to overhaul the $1.2 trillion pact. Reichert indicated after a briefing from Lighthizer in Montreal, the United States is open to the idea of extending the NAFTA talks. The negotiations are supposed to wrap up by the end of March.
