The Mexican trade minister signaled to President Elect Trump that he’s finally willing to make a deal on NAFTA, but suggested that there will be no Wall enforced.
Mexico’s new foreign relations secretary said Tuesday his country isn’t just willing to negotiate changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement, it wants to start talks as soon as possible.
Luis Videgaray said there’s ‘enormous uncertainty’ following the U.S. election of Donald Trump as president. Trump has pressured companies not to move jobs to Mexico, warned he would tax those who do, and has vowed to renegotiate NAFTA.
Videgaray said in a Radio Formula interview that Trump’s actions have caused concern, adding ‘that is why this (negotiation) process is so important, to dispel this uncertainty.’ He said talks should start ‘as soon as possible.’
