NAFTA

The Texas business community is focused on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, as the Trump administration signals it is nearing a deal. Governor Greg Abbott is now weighing in to make sure Texas doesn’t lose certain trade protections.


From Texas Standard.

It seems as though President Donald Trump wants to tie border security to the ongoing negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. The pact between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada has been in place for 24 years.

From Texas Standard:

Talks are continuing this week over what President Donald Trump has described as the "worst deal ever": the North American Free Trade Agreement. But little is known about where things stand as the seventh round of talks among NAFTA countries wraps up in Mexico City. Things are especially murky in light of new aluminum and steel tariffs Trump announced last week, leaving lots of Texas businesses in limbo.
