U.S., Canadian trade negotiators set for second day of…

There's been growing calls from both sides of the border for Canada to make concessions on its protected dairy sector in order to finally reach a new North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States.

Freeland spent three days in Washington last week and said on Friday as she prepared to leave that she and Lighthizer were making very good progress in some areas, although a deal remained out of reach.

The prime minister Justin Trudeau has been clear about its intentions: we do not assign the management of the offer. Freeland is scheduled to attend the Liberals' caucus retreat Wednesday in Saskatoon and it's unclear whether she will return to the USA capital late in the week. A deal would see Canada join a preliminary trade agreement the Trump administration struck last month with Mexico. But those talks excluded Canada, the third NAFTA country.

"Sure, it's business and it's important, but Gander is the place that - in a snapshot - illustrates the Canada-U.S. relationship".

Freeland added that to achieve a NAFTA deal, "It's going to take flexibility on all sides".

Although issues related to autos, such as the USA push to boost North American content in vehicles, have been a major part of the negotiations, other issues, particularly a desire for more US access to Canada's dairy market and Canadian insistence on maintaining NAFTA's dispute resolution system, are believed to be some of the major remaining sticking points. "The longer term is not almost as clear", said Ekos pollster Frank Graves."Trade wars are never good for the respective combatants and if this escalates it could have very deleterious economic impacts".

Yet, he stressed that "if we sign the deal it'll be. for Canada and Canadians".

Canada has encouraged overproduction and flooded export markets for milk proteins used in cheese and yogurt, hurting USA dairy farmers, Perdue said in an interview aired on Sunday on C-SPAN television. Under U.S. trade negotiating laws, a text for that agreement is due by October 1. "I think it will be gone".

"It can't be renamed something or called something else", Perdue said when asked about dairy concessions needed to reach a NAFTA deal, referring to a new milk class created previous year by Canada to price milk ingredients such as protein concentrates, skim milk and whole milk powder.

She has declined to discuss specifics about the talks, noting she and Lighthizer have agreed to refrain from negotiating in public.

Mr. Ujczo said he doesn't believe Mr. Trump feels strongly about Chapter 19.

Discussions weren't expected to get going again until the end of the week.

President Trump has voiced his willingness to create a separate deal than the one made with Mexico.

"Forget what you read about NAFTA negotiations and Twitter wars, that's not who we are", Craft told the gathered crowd as she thanked Canada - and Gander - for playing host in 2001 to countless stranded American air passengers.
