No NAFTA deal in principle to be announced at Lima summit

Bloomberg with the headline

I’m looking for a bit more detail …. BRB … ok, here we go:

  • Talks to rework the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are not advanced enough for the United States, Mexico and Canada to announce a deal “in principle” at this month’s Summit of the Americas in Lima, according to two people familiar with matter.

Via Reuters  (but, yes, Bloomberg with the headline referring to the Reuters report)


  • there was still too much to do unveil an agreement at the April 13-14 summit, the sources said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.
  • Spokespeople for the Mexican economy ministry and Canada’s foreign ministry declined to comment. A spokeswoman for the office of U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer did not respond to a request for comment on Sunday.
