The Trump administration’s effort to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and secure “a better deal for America” begins this week with talks between Canada, Mexico and the United States. The opening round will be in Washington on Aug. 16-20. The second round will take place in Mexico City around Sept. 10. Canada will host the third round at a date not yet announced. Negotiators hope to wrap up the NAFTA talks by early next year in advance of Mexican elections.
