NAFTA deal is not zero-sum game, but win-win for everyone, Trudeau says

Addressing students and scholars at the prestigious business school Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Ahmedabad, Trudeau said Canada wanted to ensure that NAFTA, the agreement between U.S., Canada and Mexico signed in 1994, is focused on benefits for people who historically haven’t benefited from trade deals.

Talks to modernize NAFTA have run into trouble over U.S. demands for big changes and an increasingly isolationist approach by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trudeau also called for countries to do more to welcome in immigrants and refugees, who he said are incredibly hardworking and grateful and often end up contributing tremendously to the society’s wellbeing.

Trudeau is in India for a week-long visit. Although Canada sees India as a potentially valuable export market, insiders say talks on a proposed free trade treaty are making very slow progress and will not be completed for years.
