Call On USTR To Protect Sex Trafficking Victims In NAFTA Negotiations

Spotlight: NAFTA parties to extend trade talks into Q1 2018 with

The fifth round of talks is expected to take place in early November in Mexico.

Negotiators from Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. have concluded the fourth round of talks on the renegotiation of NAFTA. "New proposals have created challenges and ministers discussed the significant conceptual gaps among the parties", U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Tuesday at a press conference. Officials familiar with the discussions describe two tracks to the negotiations-an impasse on a few of the most contentious proposals, and progress being made on updating the pact in other areas.

Likewise, Mexican Finance Minister Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal suggested Mexico had stretched as far as it could in making concessions.

"We must understand that we all have limits despite over current differences".

The Brookings Institution's Dany Bahar said trade deficits are not the cause of job losses, and called the USA focus misplaced.

"We have seen no indication that our partners are willing to make any changes that will result in a rebalancing".

"Countries are reluctant to give up unfair advantage", said Lighthizer. Between Canada and the United States, that bilateral trade supports eight million jobs in the United States'. It has come to our attention that the Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA) and the Internet Association have submitted comments recommending that the language of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), 47 U.S. CodeĀ§ 230, be added to a revised NAFTA.

With this in mind, Canada, Mexico, and the United States intend to allow for a longer intersessional period before the next negotiating round begins, so that all proposals can be assessed.

The report, the official said, will serve as a reminder that there are many in the US who agree with improving and modernizing the trading relationship with Canada, and that Congress will have a major say in the future of the deal.

US industry has reacted harshly to the trade talks. He promised to drive harder bargains in trade deals.

Scott Miller, a trade expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a member of an advisory committee for the State Department, told AFP the talks appeared headed for collapse because certain US proposals were non-starters for USA industry and for lawmakers.

"Either trading partners reject them and the talks break down, or Congress rejects them and NAFTA 2.0 doesn't happen", Miller said.
