NAFTA negotiation may start in May: Mexico

The U.S. International Trade Commission predicted TTP would have meant a net increase of 128,000 full-time U.S.jobs in 15 years.

Addressing senators at a meeting in the White House, Trump asserted the trade deal, signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1994, was a "catastrophe" for Americans jobs and workers. "Trade between the three countries should be exempt from any tariff or quota, as has occurred since 2008".

They want to give agriculture a voice in the larger discussion around NAFTA, which often focuses on factories, not farms. If the US breaks them, other members might try the same thing in retaliation.

The president's comments come one day after Mexico kicked off the countdown on trade negotiations. His charge against NAFTA has been largely based on the idea that American workers have lost jobs to companies who set up shop in Mexico.

While Mexico's most trade with China is in the form of imports, "our exports are also growing", noted Videgaray. And maybe we do it-maybe we do a new NAFTA, we put an extra "F" in the term NAFTA. Trump and the GOP controlled congress won't attack NAFTA on these grounds, for obvious reasons, and this is what progressives should most be concerned about. The basic need is to foster a prosperous Mexico that will provide expanding markets for our exports and, at the same time, create jobs and higher incomes that keep Mexicans from migrating to the United States. That's only 6.5 percent of total US exports to Mexico and Canada ($604.2 billion) and 3 percent of total USA trade - imports and exports - with its NAFTA partners ($1.248 trillion).

Exiting NAFTA also would have energy implications. Exports are critical for US farmers as a global slump in prices for agricultural products has pushed incomes to their lowest in years Last week, more than 130 trade associations and food companies, including Cargill Inc and Tyson Foods Inc, touted the benefits of NAFTA in a letter to Trump on trade.

"At the end of the 90 days, the negotiation will properly open to update our free trade agreement", Peña Nieto said at a press conference in Mexico City. Today, Mexico is Arizona's No. 1 trading partner.

A shakeup of Nafta now would come as USA beef output is forecast to rise to a six-year high.

Ample, cheap supplies of USA beef may dominate global markets this year and the country could be a net-beef exporter by 2018, market analyst Mike Murphy of CattleFax said at the Nashville conference. The extra fuel products could be absorbed in the US markets should Mexico slap on tariffs, but natural gas moves through pipelines and any disruption of products and pricing could really hurt USA natural gas producers in Texas and elsewhere. He also added that he does not care whether it is a "renovation" of NAFTA or a "brand new NAFTA".

"Given that the trade pact is now more than two decades old, a reexamination of the agreement to ensure it remains the best possible deal for American workers and entrepreneurs in the 21st century global economy makes sense", Hatch said.
