Trudeau and Mexican official meet to push new NAFTA deal

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday met with Mexico's Deputy Foreign Minister for North America Jesus Seade to discuss the USMCA and push it 'over the finish line' as Trudeau said.

"I've been very pleased to hear all the advances we go, we know there is still a little more work to do, but that's things you'll be working on today with our team," Trudeau said.

Seade, the Mexican official in charge of USMCA negotiations, told reporters the three countries were moving towards a deal.

He said Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland is an 'extremely competent negotiator' and said he thought the countries would not only have a very good agreement, but an 'excellent' one.

Mexico, which formally approved the USMCA earlier this year, has been pressing U.S. lawmakers to back the replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement, which underpins most of Mexico's exports and foreign investment.
