Nafta mem­bers ready for talks in Mex­ico City

The Phnom Penh Post - - MARKBEUTSSINESS -

NE­GO­TIA­TORS from the United States, Canada and Mex­ico will meet in the Mex­i­can cap­i­tal to re­sume talks on the North Amer­i­can Free Trade Agree­ment. The for­mal start of the talks is Fri­day. The three coun­tries will at­tempt to ham­mer out sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ences that have threat­ened to de­rail the agree­ment en­tirely. Some of the dis­agree­ments are over au­to­mo­biles, agri­cul­ture, gov­ern­ment pro­cure­ment and a sun­set pro­vi­sion that would al­low the deal to au­to­mat­i­cally ex­pire af­ter five years. The pre­vi­ous round of ne­go­ti­a­tions closed in Wash­ing­ton in midOc­to­ber with seem­ingly ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences be­tween the three par­ties.
