Amidst ongoing negotiations, President Trump announced that the United States will not lower tariffs on steel and aluminum from Mexico and Canada unless revisions are made to the North American Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that favor the United States. Domestic and international trade attorney Carlos Vejar, who was part of the Mexican economy ministry’s negotiating team for more than two decades, shared his viewpoint for a recent Bloomberg Politics article.
“NAFTA negotiations are at a critical point where there are specific and very technical issues that are going to be elevated to a higher decision-making level, out of the negotiating table,” Mr. Vejar stated. “Some of those issues will not be resolved until the very end of the negotiations, at the very last moment. Either you get the deal done, or you just can’t.”
