- They were super gregarious,” recalls Nicoletta of Milk and his partner, Scott Smith. “I was enchanted with how friendly they were.” So enchanted, in fact, that he didn’t realise he was being cruised. “I was new to all that,” Nicoletta laughs. “I had grown up in an environment that was not pro-gay. There was a lot of confusion around Catholicism. I was pretty vulnerable. Suddenly I was in this kissing and hugging fest, surrounded by people who were in the process of creating a better world for LGBT people. I quickly discarded the self-loathing.”

USDA Chief Set to Talk `Irritants' With Canada, Mexico on Nafta

USDA Chief Set to Talk `Irritants' With Canada, Mexico on Nafta
- U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and his counterparts from Canada and Mexico lauded Nafta’s benefits to farmers as they began to lay the foundation for broader negotiations to modify an accord that President Donald Trump once called a “disaster.”
Canadian Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay and Mexican Agriculture Secretary Jose Calzada met with Perdue Tuesday in Georgia for what the U.S. secretary said would be candid talks on “irritants” in the three-way trade relationship.
"It’s entirely correct to modify this agreement," given changes in agriculture since the North American Free Trade Agreement was implemented in the 1990s, Perdue said in a news conference in Savannah, Georgia, with MacAulay and Calzada. “That’s why we’re beginning to lay a groundwork. There are family discussions that need to take place.”

Mexico Believes Cuba's Tenacity Will Protect It from Trump

Mexico Believes Cuba's Tenacity Will Protect It from Trump
- The Republican’s actions are added to “things that have been done over the decades, and if the Cuban people have shown anything, it is their enormous tenacity,” Videgaray told EFE in an interview.

As the Mexican Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE) did last Friday, minutes after the US freezing of its normalization of relations with Cuba, the foreign secretary called for “dialogue, negotiation and agreement” between the two countries.

“We have an important working relationship of many dimensions with the United States government, but that doesn’t mean we have to change our close, friendly relationship and solidarity with the Cuban people,” he said.

Asked if the latest actions by Trump will affect the island’s economy, Videgaray said simply that the matter would have to be “analyzed.”

Between June 19-21, Mexico will host the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) at the Mexican resort of Cancun, an annual meeting that this year will concentrate on the Venezuelan crisis, since a number of countries are seeking to pass a joint statement on the situation in the Caribbean nation.

Extraordinarily foolish" for US to nix NAFTA, says Nobel laureate

Extraordinarily foolish" for US to nix NAFTA, says Nobel laureate
- Nobel Prize winner and renowned economist Joseph Stiglitz said Monday it would be "extraordinarily foolish" for the United States to walk away from or weaken the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Speaking at the 18th World Congress of the International Economic Association in Mexico, Stiglitz, a professor of economics at Columbia University in New York, said the United States should instead try to expand its trade ties with Canada and Mexico, its NAFTA partners.
U.S. President Donald Trump has criticized NAFTA as unfairly benefiting Mexico at the expense of American jobs and industry, and called for a renegotiation of the accord that entered into force in 1994.
Mexico and the United States, which share a 2,000-mile (roughly 3,200-km) border, maintain a natural economic integration largely thanks to NAFTA, which has allowed both sides to thrive, said Stiglitz.
"The interdependence of the United States and Mexico is very good and it would be extraordinarily foolish of the Trump administration to distance itself from NAFTA, to undermine NAFTA," Stiglitz told reporters covering the congress.

What a Changing NAFTA Could Mean for Doing Business in Mexico

What a Changing NAFTA Could Mean for Doing Business in Mexico
- Multinational companies operating in Mexico are facing a great deal of uncertainty. The possibility of a contentious renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has led to delayed or canceled investments in what has been one of Latin America’s most economically stable markets. Mexico’s fast-approaching July 2018 general election, of which the populist leftist candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador is the current frontrunner, is further making the case for incremental investments by multinationals corporations. While consumer spending has proven resilient, with same-store retail sales rising 6% YOY in April, most multinational corporations are developing contingency plans to mitigate risks to their businesses and reassessing the country’s role in their global market portfolio and supply chains.
