Horizon Investments' Valliere Says NAFTA in Real Trouble

If the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement encounters trouble, it could impact other areas of cooperation with the U.S. such as security and immigration, according to Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray.

“It’s good for Mexico that we cooperate with the U.S. on security and also on migration and many other issues,” Videgaray said in an interview Saturday on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam. “But it’s a fact of life and there is a political reality that a bad outcome on Nafta will have some impact on that,” he said. “We don’t want that to happen and we’re working hard to get to a good outcome.”
