Trump's Tariffs Complicating Nafta Negotiations

Nafta negotiations are weighing on companies’ investment plans and both Canada and the U.S. are hoping to make rapid progress in talks, according to Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau.

“There are some businesses that are being cautious in investments because there is an expectation that Nafta could be slightly different tomorrow than it was yesterday,” Morneau said Monday in London. “What’s been clear from the American standpoint is they are anxious to have a conclusion to Nafta as near term as possible -- we’re trying to work constructively towards that goal.”
