Canadian NAFTA negotiator says 'encouraged' by U.S.-Mexico progress

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Tuesday she was "encouraged" by progress made by the United States and Mexico towards a new North American Free Trade Agreement.

Starting her first negotiating session at the U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer's office in several months, Freeland told reporters: "We are encouraged by the progress that the U.S. and Mexico have made, particularly on cars and labour, and I'm looking forward to the conversation with Ambassador Lighthizer."
