Hot Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018

Canadian leaders are upset. Mexico is looking for alternatives. America is pushing deal breakers.

That’s how Round 5 of NAFTA, the three-nation trade pact being renegotiated at the demand of President Trump, sets up. Talks officially kickoff on Friday in Mexico City.

The last round didn’t end well. It concluded with an explosive press conference. Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo slammed the Trump administration’s proposals in front of U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. He in turn lobbed criticism back at them while they all stood together in front of cameras.

That’s not all. The U.S. recently won a longstanding trade battle with Mexico over tuna. Canada is pushing back against U.S. tariffs on Canadian lumber. Along with several other nations, Canada and Mexico are trying to revive TPP, the trade deal Trump left. Mexico is also pursuing talks with Brazil, Argentina and the European Union.
