Trump hails NAFTA progress, Mexico eyes general deal by end-2017
Reuters ------ U.S. President Donald Trump hailed progress on trade after meeting his Mexican counterpart on Friday, as Mexico's government said it expected a general agreement on reworking the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) by the end of 2017. For the first time since becoming president in January, Trump met Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, whose foreign minister, Luis Videgaray, said he expected talks on renegotiating NAFTA to start on Aug. 16., the earliest possible date. The meeting at the Hamburg leaders' summit of the Group of 20 economies was keenly anticipated in Mexico, and officials were quick to stress talks had been productive, despite Trump repeating that Mexico would pay for his planned border wall."We're negotiating NAFTA and some other things with Mexico and we'll see how it all turns out, but I think that we've made very good progress," Trump said after the meeting.
