Well well well, Trump Effect strikes again.Mexico is willing to modernize the NAFTA trade agreement. I guess it is better to offer to do it, than be told.
This is good for multi nationals to make huge $ because of very low wages, very little worker protection, very little environmental protections and finally product safety and quality is a concern to the consumer.



MEXICO CITY: Mexico is willing to "modernize" the North American Free Trade Agreement with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's incoming administration and Canada, but will not renegotiate the pact, the foreign minister said.

Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu said NAFTA has "yielded great results" for the three nations, but that there is an opportunity to make it "more beneficial" to all.

"We are willing to talk about this with the new government and with Canada as well," Ruiz Massieu told CNN late Wednesday.

"We think it is an opportunity to think if we should modernize it, not renegotiate it, but to modernize it," Ruiz Massieu said.

NAFTA will be discussed with Trump's transition team in the coming months, she said.

President Enrique Pena Nieto announced on Wednesday that he and Trump had agreed to meet, possibly before the New York billionaire's inauguration in January.

Trump has vowed to renegotiate or rip up the 22-year-old free trade deal.

He has also angered Mexicans with his pledge to force Mexico to pay for a border wall and deport millions of undocumented migrants, whom he has called rapists and drug runners.

Two-way trade in goods between Mexico and the United States totaled $531 billion in 2015.

Ruiz Massieu said Mexico "believes in free trade" and the governments "have the challenge to make sure that the opportunities created by NAFTA are more inclusive and that more people in the three countries feel the benefit of this integration agreement."

Give illegals an opportunity to leave. If they refuse, prison camps on the border that will work to build the wall. Before the last section is completed file them all out.

Willing to "modernize" but not renegotiate. I wonder what they mean by that.

Devil is in the details. But I would not want to be negotiating with Trumps appointment to Mexico.

Sounds like Mexico is getting nervous.

About time.

Mexico is another big government failure.

Obama had 8 years, but couldn't find the time. Trump is not even in the position yet, and the offers to work with him are rolling in. Who knew other than 59,000,000 million Americans.

I think because they know that if they do not work with him then he will yank it from them. It's helped them out immensely and to lose the deal completely would hurt them a lot worse than renegotiating it.

NAFTA has seen billions of dollars flow to Mexico where it's been used to build up their illegal industrial complex so as to make, grow and ship meth, marijuana, and all manner of illegal drugs to America…

So if your junkie, NAFTA has been awesome

Looks like Mexico is easy. But it might just be talk.

Some big corporations will have to be dragged while kicking and screaming.

My worry is what will be given to corporations in exchange for a change NAFTA. Remember who the government actually is.

So we get a good deal on oil from Mexico?

What are the trucks hauling?

Does my 401k grow when companies gain value by using cheaper labor down there?

Look at the top of you screen, it says ATS, I trust solid logical evidence.

You have a source?

Of course there are drugs permeating out borders. But I didn't know about the NAFTA connection. It's not personal.
