Renegotiated NAFTA could be agreed this week

Canada will restart official talks with the United States on Tuesday in the hope that an updated version of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) will be signed off in the coming days.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland is in Washington to continue negotiations, following the news that Mexico and the U.S. have already reached an agreement that rewrites the trilateral trade pact, first ratified in 1994.

That agreement has been hailed by President Donald Trump as “a big day for trade,” sending U.S. stocks to fresh all-time highs Monday, with Asian equities also propelling higher Tuesday.
