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.”
