Mexico has handed Washington an 11-page document in the process of negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in an attempt to convince the benefits of the two countries, the Mexican newspaper El Prociso reported.
“Mexico is the largest consumer of American products, and NAFTA encourages job creation in the United States, and the US has a moderate trade deficit with Mexico,” the State Department said.
The White House announced at the end of April that the three signatories to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the United States, Canada and Mexico, agreed to renegotiate the agreement quickly.
The White House said US President Donald Trump had so far agreed not to break the NAFTA agreement, and the leaders agreed to act quickly to allow renegotiation of the deal.
Trump had previously described NAFTA as a “disaster,” saying it had contributed to the transfer of millions of jobs in the US industry to Mexico
