US President Trump’s letter to incoming Mexico president Obrador

Mexico's incoming president wants to work with Trump to end NAFTA talks anti-establishment alliance

Jesus Seade, Lopez Obrador's chief negotiator for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), speaks during a interview in Mexico City, Mexico July 2, 2018.

The president said he is in discussions with Mexican President-Elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador about doing something "very dramatic, something very positive for both countries".

Trump also wrote that he has directed his team to redouble efforts with members of Lopez Obrador's team to address trade, migration, development and security, four priority issues for both countries.

"Canada is using every available avenue, including the mechanisms within the NAFTA, to challenge the Trump administration's protectionism and defend Canadian interests", said Roland Paris, a University of Ottawa global relations expert and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's former foreign affairs adviser.

The U.S. President, who has sparked trade wars with many major allies as well as rivals such as China by imposing tariffs, or punitive levies on foreign imports, tweeted that "tariffs are the greatest" for forcing other countries to renegotiate terms of commerce with Washington. However, The New England Council believes it is crucial that the playing field remain open for businesses, workers, and families across New England, so that they - through no fault of their own - are not disadvantaged by potential retaliatory trade measures or a defunct NAFTA.

Mexico aims to close trade talks with the USA and Canada by the end of August, according to a Bloomberg report.

The Trump administration lobbied in June for individual trade deals with Canada and Mexico after three-way talks fizzled.

"Prolonging the uncertainty could stop investment in the medium and long-term, which clearly would challenge economic growth", Lopez Obrador wrote in the letter.

Guajardo is due to meet his Canadian counterpart Chrystia Freeland on Wednesday, also to discuss NAFTA. Data from the International Trade Administration indicates some 10.7 million American jobs are supported by goods and services exports, and it is doubtless that tens of thousands of New England jobs rely upon trade with Canada and Mexico.
