NAFTA: Mexico Posts Website to Collect Public Commentary on Renegotiations

Mexico’s Ministry of Economy has set up a website dedicated to gathering public commentary and proposals concerning the modernization of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Open from June 26 until July 26, 2017, the site serves as a platform for citizens to submit their thoughts on the potential renegotiation of NAFTA, a cornerstone of President Trump’s campaign platform. From February to May, the Mexican government solicited feedback on NAFTA modernization from some of the country’s business and production sectors.

The U.S., which has been gathering its own public commentary on NAFTA, can begin its renegotiation of the trade agreement in August. More than 12,000 public comments on NAFTA renegotiation objectives and positions have been submitted to the U.S. Trade Representative. A summary of those objectives is expected this month.
