The Canadian Press reports there may be reason to believe a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) could be reached in the coming weeks. The 1st round of NAFTA talks took place August 16-20, 2017.
The article notes, "At the conclusion of the [7th] round of negotiations in Mexico earlier this month, U.S. Trade Representative said 'time is running very short' to get a deal before 'political headwinds' — Mexico’s presidential election in July, American midterms in November and provincial elections in Ontario and Quebec — start to complicate matters. For the first time, Lighthizer made public his hope of completing a NAFTA deal — including the legally required six-month congressional consultation period and ratification vote – before a new Congress gets sworn in next January."
That would suggest a deadline of June 30 at the latest.
