President Joe Biden’s top trade negotiator plans to travel to Mexico City next week for meetings with her counterparts from Mexico and Canada as the governments seek to build on their free-trade deal that took effect a year ago.

U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai will head to the Mexican capital for meetings on Wednesday with Mexican Economy Minister Tatiana Clouthier and Canadian Trade Minister Mary Ng, Tai’s office said in a statement, confirming an earlier Bloomberg News report. It will be her first trip to Latin America and second trip abroad following travel to Europe in June.
